Comcast faces backlash over plan to charge customers up to $100 for going over a home-internet data limit rolling out to 14 new states

Comcast is adding a data cap for some of its home-internet plans starting in January. The telecommunications giant recently confirmed it’s introducing a limit of 1.2 TB on Xfinity Internet plans in 14 states and the District of Colombia.

If customers that don’t have unlimited plans go over that cap, they must pay $10 for each additional 50 GB of data. The extra charges max out at $100. Although the plan changes start in January, Comcast said that customers won’t face extra charges for January and February. Instead, they’ll get a “credit” for those two months, and one more free pass for another month over the course of the rest of the year. News of the cap was first reported by advocacy group Stop the Cap.
