If you find yourself a bit addicted to downloading media files, hereâ€™s a warning for you. Cable Internet and entertainment provider Comcast has unplugged several subscribers for excessively downloading music or movies. However, the company declined to give specific headcount of violators.
Excessive here by definition is downloading either 1,000 songs or four feature films per day. Comcast believes these activities slow down the network, adversely affecting other subscribers.
Apparently, the term â€œunlimited Internet accessâ€ is now limited to those passionate people who get high every time they download. I can sense some chaos building up soon for this will surely irk thousands (if not millions) of users nationwide.
