I respect your opinion on the matter, but personally assert we simply need to wait and see. Either way, I'm switching to Google as soon as it's in my state.

You do you, man. This is my favorite quote about the situation, though: "Comcast seems to be employing the boiling frog approach with data caps, rolling them out slowly with limits that seem reasonable at first. The temperature-sensitive amphibians among us have taken notice, and now you can croak your loudest in response. "
I would switch to Google (or anyone else that offered decent service at a good price) in a heartbeat, but the sad fact is that it's not and won't be available for a long time in most of the country.

With 4K you'd be able to stream 180 hours before hitting 1 TB and unless you have huge monitor which is also 4K then there's absolutely no point in watching this quality. Even less point when it's a stream.

split between 3 people thats only 2 hours a day of 4k content....
the numbers get even worse when you factor in videogames which average 25~ gb a pop (40 games)
Luckily there is a catch here... you have to exceed that 1TB limit 2 months in a row.. This means you could actually populate that 4tb HDD you just installed in your ps4, and create a backup of your 2tb pc. You just have to 'lay low' for a month afterward...

That's possible, I won't deny that it could go down that way, but Comcast has already tested the waters with a 600gb limit and deemed it was too restrictive, thereby increasing it to 1tb. I don't know, man. They don't look like the evil they're made out to be is all I'm saying. And if they are, in five years Google Fiber will be pretty much all over the US and we can tell Comcast to kiss our dicks.

They really evil, though. I agree Fiber can't come quick enough, not just because they're better, but because they are competition. Comcast has literally no competition in a lot of areas of America. They push out these data limits, and then when they're too restrictive, they try to upsell you the bigger plan. But what choice do you have if you live in one of the areas they have a literaly monopoly on? Internet usage should be payed for by bandwidth, not usage, that's the real cost that Comcast has to contend with. There's not a real difference for them between the pipes always on or always off, they have to pay for them to be there. Unless they constantly increase the cap to keep up with internet usage (I wish, sincerely wish, this was the case. This would be so much less of a problem if that were true) this is just how they plan to corner the market in 5 years time to exploit more people.
