- Shares in the company were up in Tuesday trading
Telecommunications giant Comcast on Tuesday pushed back against customers’ concerns about a new data cap by arguing few if any users ever exceed the limit.
Comcast will place a 1.2 terabyte cap on its Xfinity subscribers in 14 states in the Northeast, including New York, according to a report Monday from PC Magazine.
Customer backlash followed on social media with one commentator on Twitter complaining that limits would go into effect at a time when more Americans rely on online services during the pandemic.
