The IP crowd might be interested in this. VentureBeat reports:


You just knew it was too good to last. Starting on October 1 of this year, Internet service provider Comcast will begin 
placing a cap on the amount of data its customers can access a month, DSLreports has learned 
<http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Comcast-250GB-Monthly-Cap-Goes-Live-October-1-97294> .

The 250 gigabyte cap, now confirmed by Comcast <http://www.comcast.net/terms/network/amendment/> , represents on 14,000 
of the company's 14.1 million users, it claims. While that may be true today, and while 250 gigabytes may seem like a 
very high cap, going forward, this is going to be problematic.
