Maybe that writer should do some more math. How customers x monthly bill = $$$$$$$. How much of that is profit. I think this move would just allow comcast or any other company to make more money, and pay their VP insane amounts of money per year.

I remember Timewarner wanting to test this out in Texas. I live in Texas, and pay $50.00/month. I put the 2,000,000 suscribers here in Texas. That add up to large amount of money. Some may even pay more with TV, Phone service. I pay just for Roadrunner basic line. I know not everyone pays, but out of how many don't pay vs pay. Low enough to not bother with taking them to court.
