Submission + - Comcast cuts off bandwidth hogs (washingtonpost.com)

wakingrufus writes: "Comcast has started to cut off users that use bandwidth "too much". Comcast does not say at what threshold they will cut off a bandwidth hungry user. They will not offer any suggestions to consumers as to how to monitor their bandwidth. The only way to know if you are using "too much" is to wake up one morning and have your internet cut off. Is this something they are allowed to do? It seems like they are rescinding on their promised services which were already paid for. If they have limits of bandwidth, shouldn't those limits be made clear up front in writing?"

Use the Force, Luke.
