Americans Working From Home Face Internet Usage Limits
The coronavirus pandemic led millions of Americans to turn their homes into offices and classrooms. It also forced many to change their habits to keep their internet bills in check.

Shea Dunn, a data-process analyst for Target Corp. who has been working from his Minneapolis home since March, said he never had to think about his household’s internet consumption. That changed in early July, when he got a notice from his broadband provider, Comcast Corp. CMCSA -0.11% , informing him he was using too much data and was liable for a $50 fee if he kept exceeding his cap.

Mr. Dunn said he has been watching his internet usage very closely ever since to avoid being hit with an overage fee, especially at the end of each month. “Even without downloading Xbox games anymore, I still receive messages that I’m close to hitting the cap,” Mr. Dunn said. ...

I have trouble with church services, at times, though I have to say that YouTube connections are generally better than the typical streaming off of the Internet. It has been getting better or less people are giving me competition for looking at church services? ❗

A variety of people are going to look at a variety of things. I think most Internet services are trying to handle the load that they're getting. They don't have to advertise for customers anymore like they did before the pandemic.

Much Internet content wastes bandwidth. Many of the video lectures I see on YouTube could dispense with the presenter's Talking Head altogether. Audio alone, or perhaps with accompanying slides, should be enough.

So SermonAudio is a good example of efficient resource utilization ☺

I have Comcast and watch and listen to all the church I want... my point is that if your hitting a Comcast limit your not watching church too much or listening to too many hymns or listening to too many sermons on sermon audio. Your limit is probably coming from worthless ungodly time wasters via Netflix etc....

No, QC, I only said that partly tongue in cheek, since since too many churches when they are a political platform, and of course can be as much fun as a Trump rally, but I would suggest a person not even look at such so-called services on the Internet. a live stage performance, which many of Trump's clergy friends (You know, for example Paula White) put on can be just as entertaining--and meaningless from a Christian perspective as when they are viewed either live or on the Internet.

There is a significant difference between watching a church service for a chuckle and participating remotely as you have encouraged us to do, Jim. If it's only entertainment, that's a larger problem between the viewer and the Lord.

Darius, some of that entertainment are church services. It's sort of irritating when those are interrupted, and people are using the internet for work such as video conferencing and I suppose they don't approve of that being interfered with either.

I hope internet providers can keep up with the demand
