Xfinity 360 App Will Not Count Against Bandwidth Cap

Comcast internet subscribers can rejoice. Comcast has recently announced that they will not be counting content streamed via their Comcast Xfinity App on the Xbox 360 against their bandwidth caps.  Comcast claims that since the data is only traversing their internal Comcast network that it will not count towards your 250 GB limit a month.

I believe Comcast refers to “internal” as internal to the global Comcast network because technically when network traffic leaves your home router it moves out onto the internet. However I suppose if Comcast owns all the lines between you and them it could be internal.

“Since [Xfinity On Demand] is being delivered over our private IP network and not the public Internet, it does not count against a customer’s bandwidth cap. and the XFINITY TV app stream content over the public Internet and count toward the customer’s bandwidth cap,” Comcast wrote in its¬†Xbox FAQs.

I still openly believe that the bandwidth caps that Comcast places on their users is unjust even though they state that most users do not even come close to the caps. I believe that if I pay for the connection I shouldn’t be limited in the amount of data I can transfer over the network, I am already limited by the speed I can transmit data to the internet.
