VPN is the way to go.. My favorite is HideMyAss, which works out to about $6.55 a month and offers the highest level of security (govt level), works on both my Mac and PC, and even works on my iPad! Check it out, thousands of IPs from many countries, unlimited data, torrent-friendly, tons of awesome features:

So what's the difference in security between HMA & other pay services & Tor? Tor is free.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27432234


That fact that Tor is free is the key... Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. Tor simply cannot touch the speed of a VPN. Tor might be good for checking emails or posting on forums anonymously, but no way you'll be able to stream or download any large files with much throughput. There are also more security issues associated with Tor. Just Google 'Tor Vs. VPN' for a more detailed explanation...

Good point, speed would be a issue with tor

Comcast is the most vile, corrupt, inept company on the face of the Earth! If Comcast were a pyramid, it would be upside down! It is the Peter principal company where the most inept, clueless, laziest, soulless, backstabbing, hateful, kiss ups succeed! Trust me when I say that MSNBC's on-air "talent" are reflective of Comcast's upper and lower corporate leadership! I would rather walk over broken glass than give ComcastNBCUniversal one cent of my money. They are a ruthless monopoly that will keep the fires of hell warm for the politicians and give Satan himself a run for leadership of hell itself!

While copying IS NOT stealing I wouldn't mind a few cent's going towards whoever produced whatever it is I'm copying assuming I appreciate the effort involved in the production.

This calls for the equivalent of a Virtual Tip Box or at least a system that makes it easier to buy content then steal it.

This will not work. They won't penalize everyone like this, they'll just choose a select few. Or maybe they just don't realize how rampant internet piracy is. They do this to everyone pirating and they're going to lose a helluva lot of money from people quitting their ISP.

Re: COMCAST is gonna "hijack" your internet!!
There is an extremely simple, easy and cheap solution :

Charge ALL internet account holders a modest 'media levy' via their ISP bills. About $1 a month each from a couple of billion account holders would more than cover it.

Then divvy that up according to the media downloaded. Or according to real-world market share. Or the amount they pay performers. Whatever.

IRL libraries do this. Performing rights licenses do this. Municipal services (property tax etc) do this. They will continue to do this forever. Because it works so well.

The business model is there, tried and proven for years.


But instead, as has been pointed out endlessly by digital media experts, the 'traditional' entertainment industry has refused to embrace the possibilities and potential that the internet offers them for monetizing their output and good PR.

This antiquated 'solution' ensures at least:

- consumer alienation en mass
- stifling creativity
- criminalizing behavior that the web actually encourages and was set up for (sharing info in all sorts of media)
- huge opportunities for abuse against individuals, most of whom have no idea how to understand such abuse let alone defend themselves against it
- defeating the whole object of the web as envisaged by its founders and embraced by its users

Thin end of the wedge. With such outmoded and punitive restrictions, the internet is destined to become a pale shadow of what it was and what it could become.

Meanwhile, to see exactly what's watching your internet connections, download the free TCPView from www.sysinternals.com

Re: COMCAST is gonna "hijack" your internet!!
The thing that concerns me the most about this is the invasion of privacy aspect.... Yeah, okay, sure, you're monitoring my account to see if I'm downloading any illegal torrents... But WHAT ELSE can they see??? My emails? My browsing habits? My online purchases? And what reassurance do we have that this type of personal data isn't compromised? In the search for pirates, who's to say Comcast (or any ISP) won't sell information about me to other companies, under the guise of 'marketing data' or some such nonsense.

I see this as the beginning of the end of any 'privacy' online, in the name of stopping piracy, much like all the Gestapo TSA bullshit being done to 'stop terrorism'...

My data is MY BUSINESS- therefore I will continue to use my VPN and not have to worry about anyone sifting through my personal affairs.

Re: COMCAST is gonna "hijack" your internet!!
From what I understood the ISP's are not the ones who are going to monitor you.

RIAA MPAA etc hires third party firms to monitor torrent activity or downloads elsewhere. They record your IP and report it to your ISP. Then your ISP will send you a copyright alert system.

I think the first two notices are warnings, then the ISP will "punish" you. If you are innocent you have to pay a $35 fee for them to review your case. I.e. you are guilty until proven not innocent.

Re: COMCAST is gonna "hijack" your internet!!
I dont know if this relates but, Time Warner Cable came out yesterday and said that they dont think American citizens want or need the new Google Fiber Cables being placed in Kansas City as a free test that supposedly give speed 100x faster than current day broadband in a cheap efficient long lasting cable. It is obvious they just want to suck the money out of us all of us until they can raise the bar a tiny bit again, we could install this across the nation and have enough speed to last us a LONG time and would be very efficient yet they say the people don't want or need this service! reminds me of electricity vs. tesla

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34545441


I was with comcast about 7 years. About once a year, they try to double my bill by "bundling" services together for me, without calling me or anything.
Each time I had to call and negotiate it back to where it was (or I told them I would stop services).

In 2012, this happened yet again, and finally I called them to
stop all services and stop taking my money.
It was such a waste of time having to call them on the phone once a year - I hated it.
