Comcast's Xfinity Extreme 105: Pay More To Reach Download Cap Even Faster

Today, our friends at Comcast announced their new tier of Comcastically fast broadband service in 40 metropolitan areas. It promises speeds of up to 105 Mbps. Zoom! The future is here. So, with that zippy download speed, Xfinity Extreme get higher download caps, right?

In their blog post announcing the service, Comcast reminds us of how many ways we now use the Internet that were once unimaginable, and faster service makes that even more awesome. Okay, but what about bandwidth limits with this blazing fast access? We employed the quickest way to get an answer out of Comcast: Twitter.


Thanks to Bill at @Comcastcares for the quick response to our question. He is awesome.

So Xfinity Extreme users are stuck with the same 250 GB download caps as everyone else. Will most people reach it? Probably not, but it’s still annoying.
