Comcast says no plan for usage-based pricing

NEW YORK, Dec 7 (BestGrowthStock) – Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O: ) has no
plans to start charging customers based on how much broadband
is consumed by online video and other content, a top executive
said on Tuesday.

“Right now we have no plan in place to activate usage-based
pricing,” Comcast Cable president Neil Smit told investors at a
UBS conference in New York.

Last week, the Federal Communications Commission gave the
green light for Internet providers to ration Web traffic on
their networks. [ID:nLDE6B00AB]

Smit said the company allows for 250 gigabytes to be
streamed each month and the average customer is using nowhere
close to that. Comcast provides meters to allow customers to
monitor usage.
