With Comcast declaring 250gb Bandwidth caps for those using their Internet Service. I am calling for a Boycott of Comcast. This move by Comcast is not a surprise but in the modern utilization of the Internet the 250gb Cap will destroy Internet Innovation.
As a business owner that helps media creators this will cause a decrease in consumption of new media and will result in comcast customers being locked into Comcast services. This is Anti–Competitive as people will now have to curtail normal usage of their Internet Connection.
As an Example My family of 5 are all active Internet users, we down-load movies through our Apple TV and Vudu box many of them High Definition. My kids are connected to educational resources that requires them to download videos. We watch and listen to a variety of programming that requires downloading of legitimate content. We produce content and push it online. We are a true digital family.
Prediction of Sites that will see declines in Usage:
- Video Streaming Sites
- Audio Streaming Sites
- Podcast Content Creators
- Educational Site
- Apple TV
Or any other site that create a high amount of data traffic
If I were a Comcast user, I would easily blow through the 250gb cap. Many Comcast users do not have secondary choices for service and their decision to cap bandwidth is borderline anti-competitive.
If you are a Comcast user you need to call Comcast today, and register your complaint about their new policy. If you have a alternative company you can switch to cancel your service and tell them you are canceling due to the 250gb cap.
