Comcast delivers data usage meter in Portland, Oregon

Laura June

The lucky residents of Portland, Oregon are the first to test out Comcast's just deployed and long-expected data usage meter for its customers. The interface is self-explanatory, but customers who have long been trying to guesstimate how close they are to their 250GB limit should be jumping for joy right about now. Comcast says the data is refreshed about every three hours, and that the median usage of its customers is somewhere around 2 - 4GB per month. No word on further rollout of the usage meter -- but we'll keep our eyes peeled for you.
