Trending: Jeff Bezos and other investors raise $200 million for vertical farming startup Plenty

Andre Vrignaud, who just got banned from Comcast for a year for unknowingly exceeding a 250 gigabyte data cap, is taking his frustration to the airwaves.

The 39-year-old video game consultant chats with GeekWire news partner KING 5, telling reporter Eric Wilkinson that the year-long ban is impacting his ability to earn a paycheck.

Vrignaud, who wrote a detailed blog post about his frustration with the decision, including pointing out the irony that he’s not eligible for Comcast’s higher-priced unlimited bandwidth business service, also has been featured in GigaOmKOMO News and Wired (which we noted in yesterday’s Nerd Notes column).

Nonetheless, Vrignaud said he’d actually consider going back to Comcast if he were permitted to use the service. He writes:

“To sum up, I’d prefer to have truly competitive broadband offerings here in Seattle so I could pick and choose based on price and performance. And if Comcast won in a fair fight, I’d use them. But the sad reality is that today Comcast is the only game in down for >10 Mbps broadband service to the home. So depending on my experience with other competitors, there’s a reasonable chance I’d come back to them – irritated and grumpy – if only to just not worry about having fast and stable internet access.”

Here’s a look at the King 5 piece.
