Comcast Bans Seattle Man From Internet for His Cloudy Ways
The end of the internet comes not with a bang or a procession of four lolcats of the apocalypse, but just with two blinking lights on a modem.

At least that’s how it came for Andre Vrignaud, a 39-year-old gaming consultant in Seattle, when Comcast shut him off from the internet Monday for using too much data.

Vrignaud, it seems, committed the foul of using more than 250 GB of data on Comcast two months in a row, triggering the company’s overage policy that results in a year-long ban from using its services.

“It’s one of those things I never thought would hit me,” Vrignaud said. “They didn’t even call. I just got double blinking lights on my modem.”

I use oovoo a few hours every other night, watch a good 2 hours of shows on Hulu about the same and I game a little. Normal surfing and download some too. I have never gotten close. Once I got to like 70% of the 250. FYI I am also not the only on in the house using the net. You can also pay for more and get a new business type plan with more bandwidth. I'm also a youtube junkie.
