If you’re a Comcast user get ready for caps to be put in place as of tomorrow October 1. Comcast is imposing a 250GB monthly limit, and as Om Malik says, they ““will become the symbol of a new Internet eraÃ¢â‚¬Â that features monitoring and metering. I’m not in favor of caps or metering of any kind, and like Om think it is a threat to the future of Internet use in this country.
If you would like to delve further into what this all means, Om has teamed up with a partner muayyad Al-Chalabi, and produced a white paper that takes a look at what might be unintended consequences of this kind of service.
