So far, the companies doing this are NOT Comcast. Is Comcast generating extra revenue by saving bandwidth?
From just a quick search, I can't find any mention of any bandwidth limitation with Cox...and I know the other companies implementing this are not limiting bandwidth usage. While I may be wrong, it seems that to provide the "sales" bandwidth speeds at affordable prices, they're subsidizing using these methods.
Granted, many folks here
may not like it, but nearly every other customer of theirs wouldn't even blink at this change. Also, anyone that sees this as an annoyance should be well aware of how to change it.
So, is this really a problem?--
