[quote:Anonymous Coward 35515361:MV8yMTU1MTI1XzM2NDUyMzI0XzFCNTUwRTc1] I got a call from them once.. Comcast: just wanted to let you know that we're going to bundle your services and if you don't like it you can call back later to cancel, so did you have anything else today? me: wait I don't want that. don't bundle anything. Comcast: it doesn't cost you anything you just have to cancel within 30 days and it's free of charge. me: No don't do it, I only want internet, nothing else, do not touch my service Comcast: oh I see, fine if you don't want a free service.. is there anything else I can do for you to today? me: No, no thanks, bye [/quote]

Comcast revealed today how it will deal with customers who receive multiple warnings under the newly launched “six-strikes” anti-piracy system. After four alerts the ISP will “hijack” web-browsers of suspected serial pirates with a persistent pop-up notification, making it impossible to browse the Internet. The pop-up will disappear after the customer “resolves the issue” with a Customer Security Assurance professional.
In common with other ISPs, Comcast will start out with friendly alerts informing customers that their account has been used to share copyrighted material. After four warnings, repeated offenders will then enter the “mitigation phase” during which their service will be interrupted.
Comcast has chosen a browser “hijack,” making it impossible for customers to browse the Internet, but without interrupting VOIP and other essential services.
