As Twitch viewers and broadcasters, it is important to stay up to date on the latest news and updates regarding your current internet service provider.
Twitch broadcasters seem to constantly be hampered by their internet service providers whether it’s from throttling or outages. We can now add anther potential ISP problem.
Last Friday, Comcast announced that they will be further implementing their one terabyte (or 1024 GB) internet data usage limit for their XFINTY Internet service to 18 more states. For every gigabyte over the limit, they will administer a $10 addition fee up to $200.
