Comcast to Offer Usage Meter for Broadband Cap

When Comcast announced that it was going to begin capping users bandwidth usage at 250GB per month there were lots of protests about the cap itself and also because there was no way (without third party utilities) for users to monitor their usage.

Well, now it looks like Comcast is going to be offering a usage meter come January 5, 2009. According to DSL Reports the tool won’t be a real time monitor as it will have a 3 hour delay and it will retain 3 months of usage data. It will also allow monitoring of mulitple MAC addresses.
