Data usage plans do not currently apply to XFINITY Internet customers on our fiber-based Extreme 505 and Gigabit Pro tiers of service. Data usage plans also do not currently apply to Business Internet customers and customers on Bulk Internet agreements.

Plan Options

To avoid overage charges, you must not exceed your monthly data usage plan amount each month. In trial markets where the Unlimited Data Option is offered, you may enroll in that option in order to pay an additional recurring flat monthly fee for all of your data usage, instead of overage charges based on actual usage. To learn more about the Unlimited Data Option, see What is the Unlimited Data Option?
