Check Your Comcast Data Usage to Avoid Going Over 1TB Cap

How to Check Your Comcast Data Usage to Avoid Going Over the 1TB Cap
In most states, Comcast now imposes a 1TB per month data cap on your Internet connection. You’ll want to keep an eye on your data usage meter, especially if you have no idea how much data you regularly use every month.

Sure, you can track your own data usage with a variety of software tools, but Comcast doesn’t care about the data usage you measure. For billing purposes, Comcast only cares about its own meter, so you should be checking it regularly.

You can access this data on Comcast’s website. To access it, you’ll first need to visit the Comcast XFINITY My Account page and sign in with your Comcast account details.

Click the “Devices” tab at the top of the page and then click the “View data usage” link under Usage Overview.

The meter will show you how much data you’ve used in the current month. You can use this to project whether you’ll hit your data cap based on your current usage. For example, if it’s 25% of the way through the month and you’ve used more than 25% of your data, you’ll need to slow down, or you’ll hit the cap before the end of the month.

Comcast gives you two courtesy months, allowing you to go over the data cap twice before it starts charging you. After that, Comcast will automatically add additional data at the cost of $10 per 50GB when you go over the cap, up to a maximum charge of $200 per month. You can also choose to purchase unlimited data at the cost of $50 per month.
