+ - Comcast Cuts Off Bandwidth Hogs 1

Submitted by adeelarshad82
adeelarshad82 (1482093) writes "Customers across the country have been contacted by the telecom giant with a warning to curb excessive bandwidth consumption or risk a one-year service termination. Comcast has sent a response defending its action, saying that the customers who were cut off were using above average bandwidth equivalent of sending 256,000 photos a month, or sending 13 million e-mails every month. One customer explains that he was first contacted by Comcast Security Assurance representative, who warned him that he was hogging too much of the company's bandwidth and needed to cut down. Obviously since he didn't cut back, his connection was terminated a month later. Upon calling customer service, he was directed him to the Security Assurance division which informed him that he would now be without service for one year."
