5 Ways the Comcast and TWC Merger Will Hurt Consumers

Comcast Imposes Internet Data Caps…

While Time Warner broadband customers may contend with spotty connectivity and inconsistent speed, at least there’s no limit to how much monthly bandwidth they can use.

Comcast’s XFINITY broadband service, on the other hand, imposes a data cap of 300 gigabytes for month in some markets (more bandwidth can be bought at a reported price of $10 per 50 additional gigabytes). It hasn’t been made clear if current Time Warner internet customers will find the Comcast model imposed on them, but if the provider can, why wouldn’t it?

The merger is particularly painful because the lack of a limit was the reason many consumers chose Time Warner broadband in the first place.
