That's messed up. Comcast is gonna have to stop counting the other services or start counting theirs. Clearly underhanded tactics.

The whole move towards a cap was a bad move, actions like the one here only proves it.

Do have to wonder if there'll be a similar investigation into what's going on with Hulu.

Largely because of corporate pressure, Hulu's going to require that users have a cable/satellite subscription to view anything on the site. Its still more a rumor, but it'll likely gut the site if it happens.

No idea what's going on with hulu, but the cap is horrible regardless, even if they didn't do this.

I'm from Minnesota and voted for Franken. He's a great Senator and has worked for the people since he was voted into office. A lot of people said Franken was just a comedian and laughed at him when he took office but I wish all Senators had the compassion he does. He has proven himself time and time again.

ISP's are all going to start putting smaller and smaller caps soon so you're forced to A.)pay more for your internet, and B.)Prevent you from dropping cable/sat TV service in favor of free/low cost services like Hulu, Roku, Netflix, AppleTV, etc.

If I didn't like sports so much, I'd drop my satellite service and just go with something like Roku, Hulu, Netflix, and HBO Go. I could get all that for MUCH cheaper than sat/cable but it just doesn't have any way to watch sports.

They have me by the balls on that one.
