A few days ago I had a voicemail from Comcast Custom Security Assurance. They said please call back immediately or you risk having your internet service discontinued. Gave me a case number to reference when i called.

I thought "oh shit" this is DMCA thing for all my torrent crap.

I called, they said their is a data usage limit of 250GB per month (upload and download combined) and that i had exceeded that (546 GB) for the month. Before that I had always been high but never over. I recently got a 1TB external, so i downloaded and seeded a lot more torrents. Anyway they have a usage meter so i can track my usage.

But its kinda fucked up. Comcast says "unlimited high-speed internet" 250 GB aint unlimited.

I'm sure its in your contract. Its just limited bandwidth shared among a lot of people. Its hard to complain to your provider when you're using their service to steal movies and software. :D

Unless you're downloading 546G of legit torrents.
