    Default In America, Comcast screws you! (That was a HORRIBLE attempt at a joke, I know.)

    “They're using sophisticated technology to degrade service, which probably costs them a lot of money. It would be better to see them use that money to improve service,”
    I hope their consumers will chose another ISP so others won't want to do the same...

    Idk.. that seems far-fetch for me to believe.

    To specifically target a software like bittorrent and then have it so your speeds are fast if you own the file and slow if you don't.... that sounds kinda complicated to do.

    I read this at a different website and almost shit myself. Gross misallocation of technology. As soon as I get home from my vacation I am cancelling comcast and getting something else.

    On that note, what kinds of broadband service out there are good alternatives to comcast?

    comcast is the biggest cable internet provider...

    and there's a big difference from dsl and cable. =\

    but as for that....i'm sure everyone already knew it...or had a feeling about it. Hopefully this going public like this will change somethings.
