Directly from Comcasts website, Here is the link

What will happen if I exceed 250 GB of data usage in a month?

The vast majority - more than 99% - of our customers will not be impacted by a 250 GB monthly data usage threshold. If you exceed more than 250 GB, you may receive a call from the Customer Security Assurance ("CSA") team to notify you of excessive use. At that time, we will tell you exactly how much data you used. When we call you, we try to help you identify the source of excessive use and ask you to moderate your usage, which the vast majority of our customers do voluntarily. If you exceed 250GB again within six months of the first contact, your service will be subject to termination and you will not be eligible for either residential or commercial internet service for twelve (12) months. We know from experience that most customers curb their usage after our first call. If your account is terminated, after the twelve (12) month period expires, you may resume service by subscribing to a service plan appropriate to your needs.

Our practice for the past several years has been to call only our heaviest data users, and this practice remains the same now that the 250GB data usage threshold is in effect. We may change our practice but will, of course, provide notice to you of any change.Will all customers who exceed 250 GB of data usage in a month be identified as excessive users?

Will all customers who exceed 250 GB of data usage in a month be identified as excessive users?

Yes, we set 250GB as the residential data usage threshold for excessive use. Since average consumption of those top users changes monthly, we have chosen a monthly threshold at 250GB so that our high-speed Internet customers have a number that they can stay under and will not receive a call from Comcast. Customers who exceed 250GB and are among the heaviest users of Comcast’s high-speed Internet service may be contacted by us about their excessive use. It’s important to note that this is the same practice we have had in place for several years. We continue to contact only the heaviest users of our service. We are continuing that practice now that the 250GB data usage threshold is in effect.

How does monthly data usage threshold change Comcast's policy on excessive use?

Our overall policy on excessive use remains the same—the only change is that we now provide a monthly data usage threshold starting on October 1, 2008. By providing a specific monthly data usage threshold, we are providing greater clarity to our customers about excessive use.

After I broke the 250GB/Month Usage CAP, Comcast cut off the internet!!! | Contrary to what they said about getting a warning --- THERE'S NO WARNING! --- F@CK COMCAST!!!

QWEST VDSL2 is up to 40MB (down)/5MB (up)!, NO USAGE CAP!!, $15/Month!!!

That will never happen. And Zepplinne is right. They will even break into your house to do it. They drill out the lock and come into your house to destroy your modem if your not home. Anyway it is impossible to use up 250 GB you would have to be downloading warez for that. So in my views no it is not really possible. I never ever use up my 250 GB limit. And i am a bandwidth junkie im always watching HD youtube videos.

I reached over 300+GB/month. All it takes is Streaming NETFLIX movies to bring you over the usage limits. When ALL those Google, Hulu, Apple TVs go online --- THOSE USERS WILL GO OVER LIMIT!!!

They don't warn you until you do it more than two months in a row. Once you hit the 3rd consecutive month they will shut off your service.

Ha, I am waaaaaaaaay above this month after month and comcast doesn't harass me one bit. I think the reason they don't harass me is because when I first got the service it was so shitty that they needed to send six different people out here to fix it. http://gyazo.com/35adb694b23848677644d31b5852df87.png
