Comcast ’s plan to roll out its data caps to 12 states in the Northeast region has again been pushed back. It was originally slated to be implemented in March 2021 but was then delayed to July. It’s now a nebulous " 2022 ." Comcast hasn’t said specifically when next year the rollout would occur. “ We are providing them with more time to become familiar with the new plan.” These caps will be familiar if you don’t live in Comcast ’s Northeast region, which consists of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont, West

Data cap comes to 12 more US states over four years after everyone else got it.

Following pressure from politicians and the public, Comcast won't enforce a 1.2TB data cap on customers in the Northeast US until 2022, the company said in an announcement spotted by ArsTechnica. "We are delaying implementation of our new data plan in our Northeast markets until 2022," Comcast said. "We recognize that our data plan was new for our customers in the Northeast, and while only a very small percentage of customers need additional data, we are providing them with more time to become familiar with the new plan."

This is the second enforcement delay Comcast has announced in less than a month. At the beginning of February, the company said it wouldn't start charging customers overage fees until July 2021 following pressure from Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. "Delaying this ill-timed data cap until at least 2022 is the right call," said Connecticut Attorney General William Tong after yesterday's announcement.

The effects of that attack are sure to ripple through the region for weeks, as the telecom giant scrambles to restore services while also maintaining the integrity of an active investigation site teeming with federal agents.

Comcast has had a similar data cap in many other parts of its 39 state footprint since 2016. However, thanks to an agreement with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, the telecom won’t enforce the new limit until July, meaning if you’re a Comcast customer in one of the affected markets, you won’t see any overage charges on your monthly bill until “As Pennsylvanians continue to navigate this pandemic, we know millions are relying on the internet for school and work more than ever,” Shapiro said. “This is not the time to change the rules when it comes to Internet data usage and increase costs.”

Comcast to Delay Imposing Nationwide Data Caps . Customers in the Northeastern states that were about to have limits imposed on their internet data by Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) got a six-month reprieve after the Pennsylvania attorney general got the cable giant to agree to wait. Most of Comcast 's Xfinity customers already live under a data cap regime, but a dozen states in the Northeast escaped the limits until the cable company said in November it would begin imposing them on Jan.

Comcast first announced it would implement a data cap in the Northeast US in November. For customers who went over their data allotment, the telecom had planned to charge them $10 for every additional 50GB they went over the 1.2TB limit, up to a maximum of $100 per billing cycle. To 'ease' customers into the new cap, Comcast said it would waive any overage fees in January and February, and throw in a yearly bill credit people could use if they went over their limit at any point after the first two months of 2021. The only way to avoid overage fees altogether was to spend an extra $30 per month on the company's unlimited plan or $25 for its "xFi Complete" package. Since it first started talking about the cap, Comcast has maintained that 95 percent of its customers use far less than 1.2TB every month.

Comcast recently added data caps into the internet plans for eastern and northeastern US customers, limiting them to just 1.2TB a month starting next year. First noticed by StopTheCap, a publication dedicated to the opposition of data caps , found that Comcast would be introducing a 1.2TB data cap in January Although there isn’t much you can do to fight the data cap , you could switch providers if you are able. If you do not want to change ISPs but are worried about your data limit, you can also pay an extra a month for unlimited data so you can download whatever you want without worry.

Follow us Comcast ’s 1.2 TB data cap seems like a ton of data —until you factor in remote work. The threshold that Comcast will start enforcing next year on subscribers in the northeast does, indeed, allow for a lot of online life before getting socked by surcharges of for each extra 50 GB

The delay helps customers who live in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. However, it doesn't affect those who live in any of the other 27 states that make up Comcast's 39-state footprint. In those markets, the company has had a data cap since 2016. And while the delay is welcome news for those who live in the Northeast US, there's still uncertainty ahead as Comcast didn't say when in 2022 it plans to implement the data cap.
