Comcast has announced more strict data cap restrictions just in time for the Holidays! Internet customers in the Northeast of the United States will now be subject to a 1.2 terabyte data cap starting in 2021. Customers will now be charged $10 for each 50 GB of data they go over the cap.
We reached out to Comcast for a comment, and they actually got back to us, stating, "Honestly, we find not many customers are using all 1.2TB we offer in the regular package. So, really it's like we're doing you a favor by charging you extra if you go over. That way, you'll remember we have the Unlimited Plan in which we can charge you more, but it will ultimately be less of a charge than if you tried to pay less because of the extra charge for using more for less. We know this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a tough time for our customers, but we also realize that we have you fuckers right where we want you. Since our good buddy Ajit Pai is still running the FCC, we thought we would put the screws to you just one more time before Biden fucks up our good thing. If you don't like it, you could always use a competitor's high-speed internet service. Oh wait, there aren't any? That's too bad."
Sounds like Comcast customers should just bend over and take it. If you find my lack of faith disturbing, maybe you should nut up and sign up for Starlink Internet service or DSL. For now, Comcast seems particularly proud of the technogical terror that they have constructed. Much like Nintendo's ongoing abusive relationship with the Smash scene, it appears that Comcast Internet customers don't have the cojones to do anything about it.
Stay locked on Shantynews to find out if there is a new hope for Comcast Internet customers.
