Coming soon to your favourite cable internet provider – the Comcast Secure Backup and Share. As a way for their customers to make sure that their data is always safe Comcast’s new service will come in three different levels of storage space. The basic level will cost you $4.99 per month for 10GB. The middle tier will cost you $9.99 per month for 50GB and finally at the top end you can spend $19.99 per month for 200GB.
As the folks over at DSL Reports are reporting
Once the service is purchased by a primary Comcast account holder, everyone in the family can use the service with their own individual “lockers,” though their use contributes to the storage total. If the Comcast broadband account is canceled, users have fourteen days before all content is deleted permanently.
When it comes to music though you will be able to backup the files but you won’t be allowed to share them as you can other files in the new service. Here’s the kick in the ass part of the deal though – these backups and restores will count against your new 250GB monthly cap that Comcast is also introducing.
Yes folks just another way in which Comcast shows it really cares about its customers.
