In a welcome move that Comcast says is due to our changing Internet habits (streaming, streaming, streaming), Comcast is upping its monthly data caps from 250GB to 300GB. Nice! That's definitely less awful. This is the first increase in data cap size since Comcast introduced it back in 2008.

If you're a hardcore Internet user who sucks bandwidth like water though, you can buy 50GB blocks of data for $10. [Comcast Blog via GigaOM]
