Comcast made the announcement on Thursday in regards to the new bandwith usage cap.

The cap is going to go into effect on October 1st, and will limit usage to 250GB of bandwith each month.

Comcast has made it clear that if a user goes over the 250GB limit, they will basically get a warning.

Then, over the next 6 months if the customer exceeds the limit again, the company will suspend that customer from the service for a full year.

This is the first time Comcast has put an actual bandwith cap in place, and comes less than a month after the FCC slapped them for their practice of slowing or blocking P2P traffic on their networks.
