Determining the data transfer allocation amount requires a balancing act between the needs of an individual’s use of the network and the requirements of maintaining a healthy, efficient network for all.
We determined the data transfer allocation for each service level based on the overall bandwidth usage needed to optimize the network for all users, and we set the amount high enough that the vast majority of our users would never approach it.
100 GB of data transfer usage is included with all levels of internet service at no additional charge. High Speed 55 and above also include an additional 200 GB of usage, for a total of 300 GB. That amount can be increased by subscribing to additional Usage Allotment Upgrades.
We set these data transfer allocations well above the monthly usage for more than 99% of our users. Only our heaviest internet users will be affected by our data transfer policy.
