Comcast will pay for delivery

And if Comcast starts "sending" more traffic than they are "receiving" with these carriers, I expect they will have to pay for delivery as well. I can't imagine AT&T or Verizon giving any "free rides" to anyone.

cable sucks

The thing they don't seem to understand is that cable sucks. A la carte - services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. - is what people want. I'd rather pay $8 a month for Netflix and watch what I want when I want it than $30+ a month for cable and get a few decent shows a week out of the ocean of crap that is Network Television.

Re: cable sucks

I totally agree but you forgot to highlight other advantages (at least for Netflix). Network television shows are infested with ads, on-screen logos and various in-program pop-ups. Netflix is just pure content.

How does Comcast justify PUSHING data on to other networks...

In exactly the same way and for exactly the same reason the say Netflix is PUSHING data on to theirs?

All mobile phone companies should start billing Comcast for this.

Or (unintentionally of course ) allow peering with Comcast to become saturated and cause poor performance of Comcast's app.

Then Comcast would have to pay them for direct interconnection.

Sprint's network already sux's so not like we will notice the heavy use.

Or quietly throttle traffic to and from Comcast and claim the problem is on Comcast's end.

Good luck watching live sporting events on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. If you are a sports fan, it is either cable/satellite or just what you can get OTA (which isn't much). Sports fans really are pigeonholed into paying for cable/satellite, which is why I fight for a discount that I renew every year just to keep cable TV and internet. My latest deal, $100 a month for Comcast Blast internet and preferred cable TV.
