Comcast Launches Unlimited Data in Atlanta

comcast1Love the Internet and live in Atlanta? Comcast’s new offering might be of interest to you. For an extra $35 per month, Comcast will remove the 300 GB cap and let you surf to your heart’s content under a new unlimited data plan.

The Atlanta pricing structure was announced over the weekend, but it isn’t the first of its kind – Comcast rolled out a similar trial in Florida last year where subscribers pay a $30 fee to go unlimited. According to the Washington Post, the company started toying with the idea last year after surveying heavy users. Sixty percent of respondents said they’d be happy to pay an extra $30 to $40 for unlimited rather than pay overage fees for every extra 50 GB consumed.

If people are willing to pay, Comcast could potentially have a nice new source of revenue.
