Comcast vs. Cablevision caps

said by thewilmerx:

Comcast CTO Tony Werner tells the Times. "Just because someone consumes more data doesnt mean they drive more cost."
I'd like Mr. Werner to answer why the "Extreme 50" Comcast Docsis 3.0 tier (50 Mbps up/10 Mbps down) is capped at 250 GB total usage and costs $139.95/month while Cablevision fastest Docsis 3.0 tier will be uncapped at speeds of 101 Mbps up/15 Mbps down for $99.95/month.

»Cablevision: 101Mbps For $99.95

Is Comcast's Docsis 3.0 architecture different than Cablevision's? How is Cablevision able to offer this kind of speed uncapped while Comcast cannot do the same?
