The Internet Limitations are coming....

Today, Comcast officially announced a 250 GB cap, while threatening to disconnect users who exceed this limit more than once. Comcast is taking the heat once again, but they are not the only ISP that limits its users. Other ISPs, Qwest being one of them, have exactly the same policy - and the same threats.

The 250GB bandwidth limit that Comcast has announced is not as new as it may seem. For several months, even years, Comcast subscribers who went over an “unspecified limit” have been contacted by the ISP. Customers are presented with two options: cut back their bandwidth use, or find a new provider. Today, however, they officially announced a 250 GB limit, perhaps in an attempt to be more transparent about their network management practices.

The GFI Outlet has officially been installed and is ready for you to plug in.

If you're curious as to what is going to be happening here I'll give you a run down on what to expect on occasion:

  • mentally stimulating videos excavated from all across the internet
  • conversations involving politics, philosophy, religion, science, history, and general intellectual topics
  • an unknown-as-of-yet weekly special
  • music recommendations that have provoked my thought and emotion
  • irrational on-the-brink-of-insanity stories and comments (courtesy of when the gfi outlet malfunctions)
  • photographs to add a little color to the english alphabetical pictures.

In all I hope to branch across the internet like the electricity of lightning in the sky. If not hopefully I can at least make the sound of the thunder that normally follows.
