I read an article--and just read a more recent one--that Comcast is going to limit U.S. downloads to 250 GB a month. The earlier article I read said that other ISPs like might also set a limit and charge for what's over it. Will that affect some of you? Maybe there'll be an exemption for bookshare members? I have no idea how many books it would take to reach the 250GB limit.
