You may think this is over the top but it has been the recent focus a la Cass Sunstein as to a shut down of the internet. Well get ready right now to reorient your entire family on internet protocol and procedure. Comcast is “proud” to announce their brand new usage meter.
How many times have I pondered this. Allow me to peruse the propaganda and illustrate how these things come straight out of the think tanks of Satan’s highest minions.
Here is a cut paste from the email notification telling me to look for another internet service provider.
Dear Comcast High-Speed Internet Customer,
We are pleased to announce the pilot launch of the Comcast Usage Meter in your area. This new feature is available to Comcast High-Speed Internet customers and provides an easy way to check total monthly household high-speed Internet data usage at any time. Monthly data usage is the amount of data, such as images, movies, photos, videos, and other files that customers send, receive, download or upload each month. Comcast measures total data usage and does not monitor specific customer activities to determine data usage.
The current data usage allowance for the Comcast High-Speed Internet service is 250GB per month. This means that the vast majority of our customers – around 99% currently – will not come close to using 250GB of data in a month, and do not need to check the usage meter.
To view your current data usage, please visit http://customer.comcast.com and sign in to customerCentral (shown below).
OK, so I might want to check on how much I actually do use, right? Well herein lie the Satanic details.
It tells me how to access that information here.
After signing in, click on the “User & Settings” tab and click again on “View details” under “My devices”. The usage meter shows the current calendar month’s data usage for your account starting on the 1st of the month. Over time, you will be able to see the previous three months’ data usage as shown in the sample image below.
Here is the complete agreement.
