i contracted for 20 dl 4 up, which i was told was high speed. "I was never told that there was somekind of CAP or crippled internet.
You're confusing speed with capacity. You're also ignoring the fact that you agreed to the service and that the cap was outlined in the service agreement. If you didn't read the agreement .. that's your fault.
now if u have an xbox online, use online file storage, rapidshare etc.
access ur home security camera remotely, watchHULU UTUBE etc. for entertainment
purchase softwareonline, get updates etc.
You'd need a very low cap for that kind of activity to push you over. What was the cap that you exceeded?
i could have saved money getin a dsl instead
But you chose not to do that, so it isn't relevant.
but the thing is "the content is not owned by comcast"
read that above line a few times.
We don't need to .. the content is irrelevant .. you exceeded a bandwidth cap and the bandwidth is a service provided to you by Comcast.
here are a couple of examples
i pay property tax, i get to use all the air i want, because no-one owns it,.....yet
but the goons at comcast have u believe that they can meter the air-content, just because they say so.
The people at comcast are metering the bandwidth because a) it costs them money and b) that is the service that they agreed to provide you.
now i understand that they have expenses, but that is what my suscription pays for. but obviously i have been overcharged, since comcast has 25 billion to buy a tv network rather than upgrade there outdated infrastructure
Overcharged? Did they charge you more than you agreed to pay?
the other issue i how this metering is being done?
mylocal gas co. just tested my meter and issued me a refund because it was overcharging me. thats because there is regulation requiring them to test there meters
who or what is testing there meter?
The gas meter is a physical device which can become inaccurate over time. The bandwidth meter is a piece of software that can not become inaccurate over time. The analogy is seriously flawed.
putin aCAP is putting this country on the same level as our educational system, 2nd class
That is ridiculous. If you don't want a cap, pay for a service that doesn't have one. That is what makes the USA great .. the freedom to do as you choose ... not the freedom to force companies to do what you want at a price you can afford.
what company is going 2 develop the next utube(high res) when comcast is going to kill there idea by a retarded policy?
Capitalism made the USA great .. it will solve this 'problem' as well. Bear in mind that watching hidef Youtube videos all day long will not cause you to exceed a cap from most providers.
Again .. what was the actual cap on your service?
sorry if im ranting, i told some friends in germany about this and they though comcast was retarded. they said other words but they dont translate well.
