Dunno if you guys know this. but Comcast is limiting their downloads per month to users to 250 gb's. After that you pay 15$ every 10 gb's over. Kinda sucks for downloaders. /shrug Have to find the webpage i read that about.

Be really hard to use that much really. Comcast has been sort of a target when it comes to p2p and them interfering with transfers. And alot of people
have complained of there speeds and the likes. Maybe its because im in a small town but i have been very happy with comcast. They dont limit my speeds
on torrents or any other p2p transfers. I have never hit any caps or got any emails from them regarding p2p shareing. I once downloaded a 80 gig torrent that took me a full week to download and not once did it ever get interupted. My computer also uploads 24.7 except when i play cod2. Maybe im just a lucky one i dunno but i like comcast :P

i live in a big city area too, and i love my comcast.  i pay extra 10 dollars to get the 20meg connection and it uses all of it, also has 4 up and uses all that too.  i hope to not see a decrease in performance.

Yeah, comcast is pwnage. I get great DL and UL speeds. I should be good with 250GB though. I'll do all my downloading at my moms  house, where I have bright house.
