Windows 7: Comcast capped usage

16 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1
Comcast capped usage

Anyone out there have Comcast and been contacted regarding using too much bandwidth? I know the limit is 250GB a month, but I accidentally went over this month. I'm currently at around 310. I read in their FAQ that they only contact the heaviest users. So my question to you guys is this: Have you been contacted and if so, how much GB did you use? I've only read one account of a person mentioning specifically how many gigs they had used when they were contacted, and that was like over 1000GB. So I'm wondering if they'll contact me and give me a warning for the next six months for using around 310GB. Thanks!

How is it possible that computer to computer transfers are exactly 10mbit/sec but my internet connection is working fine at 40mbits with the same computers and network adapters? One computer is asking me to activate because I put the CPU back at stock from an overclock. That couldn't be it,...
