de, but I don't know...is there something different about Comcast's data limits when compared to Exede's, technically speaking, that I am not aware of that would make someone feel that 250 Gb limit of usage per month, is somehow, well, UNFAIR? Really, I just don't know the answer to that, but still the thought of 250 Gb not being enough really had me laughing.
I will give you a link to the whole statement and maybe people who read this who know more than I do can explain if there is some inherent difference in a comcast account, meaning that 250 Gb of Comcast can't be compared to equal Gb usage with exede?
anyway, got me to thinking about issues like what are people's expectations, when does it seem that maybe people are feeling somehow ENTITLED to something that really isn't a logical or reasonable expectation, vs when is a problem really a problem that is the provider's fault, how do you know the difference--do people sometimes blame a provider for not offering something the provider can't offer because of the nature of the product...why are some people more ready than others to immediately believe that something along the lines of lying or cheating is being deliberately perpetrated on them by a provider....when this hasn't been proven...why are some people so quick to think it's deliberate lying or cheating vs mistakes or incompetence, or neither of those?
No I am NOT saying that lying and cheating and incompetence isn't out there in the world bigtime...it is...but I suspect not nearly as often as we think it is...I have been looking online to see if I could find any cases of an internet provider who has been proven to have been deliberately lying to and cheating customers with regard to their contractual data caps..or a provider who has been found to be inaccurately metering the customers' usage, for the purpose of increasing profits or forcing customers to buy more expensive plans. or just have been incompetent and so the metering was inaccurate and customers weren't getting what they paid for...so far I haven't found any cases where this has been investigated and proven...does anyone know of any?
But back to the original question....does this woman really have a legitimate complaint about 250 Gb being ridiculously insufficient? To the point of ruination of her family?
Here is the link to the lady's statement about comcast/the 250Gb limit:
Are we ENTITLED to have what we think is the right amount of data usage? Or do we have to live within the contractually stated restrictions of services we pay for and subscribe to and must we just find the provider that offers the closest to what we would LIKE to have, for the best price? Clearly, this woman sounds genuinely outraged....
