Comcast is testing raising the download cap to 3mbps. The article cites Cablevision's service, but what they forget is that when @Home was still around, downloads were always 3mbps. The costs for Comcast are extremely high, the mail servers go down often. Why am I paying over $40 per month?


The new 30-day trial will begin Thursday in Pittsburgh for subscribers who pay $42.95 a month on top of basic cable TV service. A separate 3mbps test is already under way in Knoxville, Tenn. A company representative would not comment on whether Comcast plans to eventually offer 3mbps service to all of its subscribers.
