Comcast starts throttling mobile video, will charge extra for HD streams

Comcast, which resells Verizon Wireless service, limits video and hotspot
speed.

By Jon Brodkin

Comcast's Xfinity Mobile service is imposing new speed limits on video
watching and personal hotspot usage, and the company will start
charging extra for high-definition video over the cellular network.

The short version is that videos will be throttled to 480p (DVD
quality) on all Comcast mobile plans unless you pay extra, while
Comcast's "unlimited" plan will limit mobile hotspot speeds to
600kbps. Only customers who pay by the gigabyte will get full-speed
tethering, but the cost would add up quickly as Comcast charges $12
for each gigabyte.
