Comcast will soon limit the amount of data subscribers can download and upload each month.The nation's second-largest provider will limit users to 250 gigabytes beginning October 1. One would have to download four movies each day to come close to that amount.

The average use is between two and three gigabytes each month.

Many other Internet providers cap subscribers' use. Comcast says curbing the top users is necessary to keep the network fast and responsive for other users.
