Re: An example of how caps are going to be used to protect cable
said by MovieLover76:I agree. I called Comcast out on this practice in July 2009:
This example really doesn't matter, having tried the feature on my xbox360 with fios, the feature is pretty stupid, lower quality tv over my xbox when I already get it on my set top box. But is is an example of the tricks cable and telcos are going to play to protect their business against the likes of netflix, youtube , hulu etc.
Don't count their services against the bandwidth cap, because it's on a private ip network which is bs, the xbox is using the same type of nat ip address from your router that your computer is using, the only difference is if the data leaves comcast's core network, which isn't anything new many services host servers inside networks like comcast to provide better service, and even if they do have to go outside of their network for the other services content the cost of bandwidth is so minimal at that point in the network it's negligible. The real cost for Comcast per user is maintaining their cable modem network, the same network that both their xbox video service and Netflix work over

Yup, the cap is still 250 GB.... and it has been that since October 2008.
