Who determines what falls under the cap?
Would Comcasts own digital services fall under the cap?
For example, would Comcasts VoIP count towards the cap? If not then should vonage or skype count towards the cap?
Would Comcasts VOD count towards the cap? If not then should other VOD , such as netflix instant play or hulu or jooost count towards the cap?
Could Comcast partner with a video game maker and then say that network traffic for that video game doesnt count towards the cap? For example what if Comcast partnered with Microsoft and said all XBOX live traffic wouldnt count towards the cap. Would Playstation or Nintendo or PC traffic count towards the cap?
Could Comcast partner with a web service provider, such as Google and say that all Google traffic doesnt count towards the cap but AOL or Yahoo traffic does count.
Could Comcast partner with a specific web site, such as Digg and say that all Digg traffic doesnt count towards the cap but Slashdot traffic does count.
The problem may not be the cap itself but who gets to say what falls under the cap. It brings up a lot of the same old Network Neutrality questions again.
said by RedBankTV:CDV runs under differant portion of bandwidth then CHSI it is not shared. Yes vonage/Skype should count toward cap as it is using the bandwidth of your internet connection.
Would Comcast's own digital services fall under the cap?
VOD doesnt run over internet it is in the video signal so not impacting your CHSI, Netflix/Hulu/joost would use your connection so yes do count toward cap.
What falls under cap will be anything that impacts your download usage. You choose to use these services online, comcast does not force you to use them.
