Podcasters Shutdown on .Mac

I am sure when Adam Curry was using Terabytes of Apples Bandwidth they realized they had a issue. Well today the blues are being sung by a large number of Apple users who have been abusing Apple’s generosity with their .Mac accounts, and now will have to go someplace else to find Bandwidth.

“Apple now limiting bandwidth on .Mac accounts July 20, 2005 – 07:00 EDT Apple has quietly added a new upgrade option for .Mac users. In what appears to be a new policy, users are now limited to 3GB of bandwidth per month, with an upgrade option of 10GB data transfer per month for US$49.95 per year. In terms of storage space, 250MB is included with a standard .Mac account, with 1024MB of storage as part of the $49.95 upgrade.”

I predicted this some time ago, and actually was surprised that the party has lasted this long. For the thousands of podcasters that have now been displaced, I have several services to recommend. A hosting account with GoDaddy or Libsyn would be the first place I would start. If you need a GoDaddy promotion code listen to my podcast the last one gave two out. [MacMinute]
