Re: Something to look forward to with Comcast...

said by IPPlanMan:

My case for metered billing is that it encourages infrastructure investment. What incentive does Comcast have to invest in its infrastructure when you pay them a flat fee each month no matter how much you use... (well, up to 250GB that is)....
How about the encouragement that if you network sucks people will get their connection from someone else?

Oh that's right, we are dealing with a monopoly / duopoly industry so people really don't have a choice. My bad.

As been shown, if these companies have competition they WILL invest to stay competitive. However, as it stands now they have no reason to invest, just reasons to restrict and charge more for the same thing.
