Consuming all their media digitally. I would go over every month if I didn't offload some of my bandwidth through other accounts I have access to. Hell, when I finally got my first Xbox One when the X launched, I used 600GB in the first twelve hours just downloading the handful of 360 games I owned and the few One games I had purchased over the previous couple of months. I shudder every time I check my list of games that need updates and see several with 30+ GB patches.
600 GB used to be the Comcast cap when they started it in Atlanta in 2013. I didn't even get a notification that they had started a cap, just a notification the first month I went over. You get three strikes and then you start paying overages. They moved it to 1.2 TB in Atlanta in early 2014 right after my first strike and that didn't reset it. When I moved to Tennessee it was the same cap here. Best part is even though I closed my account in GA and opened a new one in TN, I still had my first strike from GA. And the strikes are lifetime.
Yea I'd like to co-sign this. That game is fun as hell and a pretty impressive showpiece for all the new lighting effects on Series X. Just "beat" it last night (only achievement is left is for grinding out more miles driven which no thanks).
It's killing me that buying Dirt 5 at launch wasn't in my budget. If I still had Best Buy's 20% off I'd have used it and hoped for getting a price match later.
I thought this was already everywhere for them by now.
I actually had no clue this was even a thing until I cut cable last year and was asked if I needed more data. In those three years, I found out I never even came close to cap and that's with plenty of downloads, streaming, etc. Even this month after all the tech upgrades and downloads I'm still under cap. WTF are people doing that they need over 1.2TB per month?
It's super easy to go over for cable cutters. We do have four people in the house and watch in HD, sometimes 4K. I had to shut down our modem the last couple days of the month several times. Had to turn off auto updates on consoles. That was a killer as I just leave stuff on my 6tb and 4tb drives so I'm not constantly redownloading games and wasting bandwidth, but all of the constant updating was killing me, especially stuff like CoD, Gears and Halo. Seems like Smite and Paladins have 13gb updates every week. I would watch our cap and download as much as I could if we had room at the end of the month. Local utility started fiber for $10 more a month than Comcast's discounted rate I'd have to call about once a year and keep trying until you found someone who would agree. Switched to them the moment I could and now instead of 150/10 and a 1.2t cap for $55 a month I have 500/500 and no cap. Couldn't be happier to ditch the devil.
