sh*t if y'all got kids you will definitely go thru that 1 tb. Last month I got charged an extra $100 thru comcast for going over.3 kids, summertime, they want to stay in all day and not go out like we did in the 90's kids will run up that damn wifi.
Bruh, that happened to me. I didn’t even know I had a cap until last month when Comcast sent me a warning. Did some investigating and it was my daughter’s lazy a*s on FaceTime all day while on vacation. Put a stop to that quick. Kids today don’t watch regular TV and don’t use audio calls, apparently.

Never had it but I heard it’s trash
I've had it a couple times, and I have family that has it as well...

Your bill will start at a $100, then like 4 to 6 months later your sh*t will be $250, and that's not even for the best/highest package...

Switched to AT&T, got Gigaspeed, 1000 mb/s, for like $109 a month, no surprises...

AT&T gets a bad rap, but they have always been consistent with me, problem is, it's not available everywhere...

i had att 2 years ago. They had me with that 1tb plan but if I also had a tv package they waived it. So i had to pay an extra $20 a month and i just got basic cable. sh*t was stupid. I paid $82 a month for 100 down and 30 up. Now i have Fios and its $45 a month 100 up and down no cap.
Don't even ask me how...

yall forgetting that if you stream in higher quality it uses more gb's so its not even so much that people are living on the net. Its only gonna get worst as higher quality movies and shows are streamed.

Yup. I'm paying an extra $50 a month due to their 1 tb monthly download cap limit. Without it, they'll charge you $10 every 100 gb you're over whenever you exceed 1 tb.

the unlimited data extortion fee is just a scam. it was proposed when streaming services like sling or hulu started to really grow big. now the cable mafia has all these streaming service options of their own the cable mafia is very desperate to legally extort its victims any way it can

AT&T is my fav but I sadly can’t get it where I am. I have Cox and my bill is around 104.

Im curious how are you guys using a terabyte of data a month? Im with AT & T fiber and my max month of internet usage was 350 gigs. My average is like 250gigs.

I watch crunchy roll, youtube, netflix, amazon prime etc. I basically stream everything and even torrent anime and im no where near 350 gigs.
PC gamer here, I download tons of games and being that I have Gigabit speeds it's useless to keep games installed on my SSD when I can just reinstall it because it only takes a few minutes to download 60GB game.

I also upload content to Youtube. I used to stream a while back but I don't do it as much, Twitch, Youtube, Mixer, and other streaming sites. I also watch everything online Netflix, Amazon Prime, and more.

Also, when your game has a huge update or you have other gaming consoles, that can also factor into spending up data quickly. PS4 always having a GB update.

Little you say? It's more like a monopoly since their only competition is AT&T. Guess what, they do the same thing unless you cable and phone bundled in.
I see they not tryin that sh*t in the DMV area lol, ill happily stay on FIOS.

Good for you. Lots of my download traffic happen when I'm not at home and are automated. Then the rest of the bulk comes from work. Plus, I have a full household of 5 other people in my house that also use the same internet.

Comcast be on some bullsh*t that's why I went back to AT&T when I had moved again.

I pay maybe $50 for internet and $30 for unlimited data and price never flip flop and I don't have to deal with data caps either.

I had Xfinity for 1 week.. literally 1 week and canceled. The Xfinity technician who came and hooked up my internet used a splitter to run cable line to my apartment instead of running a cable line directly to my apartment (if this makes sense to yall. Basically he did it the lazy way instead of doing it the right way). This resulted in me getting way less speeds than I was paying for. I was paying $60 a month for 150mb/s down. I was only getting between 10-35mb at most. Completely unacceptable. A week before this I was using a free Xfinity hotspot for internet until they hooked my net up and was getting between 1-12mb down so I was very upset as anyone else would be.


I called them and complained 3 times that week. The 2nd time I called they gave me $15 in credit and told me a supervisor would call me back and never did. So I called back the next day (3rd time) and they told me they could have a technician come out to look at why my speeds were so bad and fix the problem for free BUT if the technician felt like it wasn't a problem on their end and that I needed to just be educated then they would charge me $70 for that technician visit.

That was the last straw so I canceled. Signed up for ATT 1000gb fiber for $70 a month and had fiber internet hooked up correctly 2 days later and it's been a dream ever since.

fu*k Xfinity. They have a 30 day free cancellation by the way so if you sign up to Xfinity you got 30 days to cancel for free and not get charged the rest of your contract.

Not everyone has that option. I live in a big city. I have a 1tb cap. I havent gone over it once with one 4k tv and 2 other 1080p tvs. Plus i download xbox one games. The most ive used is 600 something gbs. And we are a tv and movie watching household. Idk how people are breaking the caps unless u download a lot of games.

Edit i take back. My new record is 893gb in july. Wow. Getting close! And we used 400 something gb so far this month. Binge watched 10 eposodes of wu a*sassins this week. Not sure if it was in 4k or not cant remember.
