There is speculation that Comcast is exploring usage fees for their service. Pay to play? "To be clear, we have no plans to announce a new data usage policy" announced David Cohen of Comcast. Comcast suspended its 250 GB per month limitation in 2012. Comcast is pointing at that and saying No Worries!

BUT..read between the lines...Comcast is testing usage-based rates and overages fees in some markets. Hmm. What do the tests aim to show? I think it is intended to see how much pain the consumer is willing to accept. OH. Check out Comcast's Flexible Data Option test marketing.
