Again, the 250 GB Cap is to prevent competition with CC TV

As mentioned by JL (Comcast) earlier in this thread, the cap does not address "real time congestion", but we can't get an answer from Comcast on what the cap is really for preventing, much less an official meter for over 1 year now since the cap went into effect on 10/1/2008.

»Re: Bandwidth Limits/Congestion Management - All discussion here

It seems clear to me that the 250 GB Cap is to prevent iTunes/Apple TV, Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu from coming out with a successful true high-def service... That would make Comcast's OnDemand and Premium Channels irrelevant.

And Comcast wants to remain relevant. This fixed cap is how they will do that. They want to keep TV on TV and Internet on Internet. They don't want TV on Internet. Follow the money trail...
