The speeds of two existing high-speed Internet tiers have doubled

Comcast is adding some speed to its Internet services this week at no extra charge to its customers. 
 
According to the cable and Internet provider, it's doubling the speeds of two of its Internet tiers: Xfinity Blast!, which will go from speeds of 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps, and Extreme 50, which will go from speeds of 50 Mbps to 105 Mbps. 
 
"More customers are simultaneously connecting to the Internet through tablets, laptops and smartphones within their homes," said Cathy Avgiris, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Data and Communications Services at Comcast. "Whether it's to stream movies, upload photos, video chat with family and friends, or catch all of the Olympics action live on their tablets and connected devices, we want to ensure these customers are getting the speeds they need. 
 
"We will continue to increase speeds as customer demands evolve. Comcast is committed to providing our customers with even more choices to get the best, fastest and most reliable experience possible."
 
Comcast also announced its latest Internet plan, Xfinity Platinum Internet. This new addition features download speeds of up to 305 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 65 Mbps as well as free Xfinity Signature Support.
 
The two existing tiers will double their speeds this week at no extra charge while Xfinity Platinum Internet will launch in certain Northeast markets like Boston, Hartford, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Richmond, New Jersey and Wilmington.

I have Cox and there is no sense of a cap. Cox does have a cap, but they only enforce the cap if it is absolutely necessary. Eventually Google will have to add a cap because it cost money to maintain networks.

The caps relates to maintenance costs because companies have figure out that the total amount data their devices can handle is related to its life span. Complaining that there should be no caps does not work. I agree that caps are bad, but it can not happen unless you are willing to pay more for connection and every else's connection.

Try asking about Business plans. The caps for these probably has no caps or much higher cap. If you get a Business plan with no caps, then you can start complaining that you have to go with a Business plan for no caps.
