Comcast Corp. is expanding its 1 TB data caps to more markets.
Beginning Nov. 1, the company will deploy the usage caps in Dothan, Ala.; California; Colorado; North Florida, Southwest Florida and West Palm, Fla.; Southeastern Georgia; Idaho; Indianapolis and Central Indiana, Fort Wayne and Eastern Indiana, Ind.; Kansas; Grand Rapids/Lansing, Detroit and Eastern Michigan, Mich.; Minnesota; Missouri; New Mexico; Western Ohio; Oregon; Houston; Utah; Washington; and Wisconsin.

Comcast is also offering data plans to customers who want to use more than 1 TB per month. These include a $50 a month plan, which has no overage charges, or a payment of $10 for additional 50 GB blocks. Customers who use less than 5 GB per month will get $5 back as credit.
Comcast is offering subscribers "two courtesy months," when it will not bill them the first two times they exceed 1 TB of usage. Customers who use more than a TB two times or less in a 12-month period will have their courtesy months restored for the next 12-month period.
Customers can log on to the website to check how much data they use each month by logging on to their account on the website. Further, customers can also log on to Xfinity's website to estimate their average monthly data usage.
