Comcast Is Seeking To Cap Internet Usage For Customers.
Comcast goes to war over Internet regulation

We fight for the right to cap

Comcast has decided to fight an FCC ruling that it is improperly blocking customers' Web traffic.

The FCC determined that the company is violating a federal policy that guarantees unfettered access to the Internet, but Comcast challenged the this ruling in the U.S. District Court of Appeals.

Comcast claims that the FCC order and that the Commission's action was "legally inappropriate and its findings were not justified by the record." If Comcast wins, it will limit the ability of the FCC to stop companies capping heavy users.

The FCC said that Comcast's network management practices were "discriminatory and arbitrary" and that the company's practices "contravene industry standards and have significantly impeded Internet users' ability to use applications and access content of their choice."

Comcast has said that it has delayed traffic, not blocked it, and that the FCC's so-called network-neutrality "principles" are part of a policy statement and not enforceable.

So I guess it's pay more or surf less if they win. You know all the others will follow suit if this is allowed.

I guess I'm lucky... mediacom is doing the opposite of what most of them are doing... rather then whine about usage, they are taking their profits and expanding their infrastructure. Not only that but another competing firm has put in a rural fiber optic network in this part of our state (SD) basically running a fiber optic line up to everyone's house. It's great! Although the service is still pricy.
