Re: Hum...

No, It was the hue and cry and attention of the regulators that got them to back down.

They were throttling competitor's lines, deliberately in an anti-competitive move. Bandwidth had nothing to do with it. When that got rolled back, they realized that now they'd have to compete or face mass exodus of their customers to the unthrottled competition---- which was the whole reason they throttled them in the first place, so that they WOULDN'T lose customers.

Now they have to back off. They still got a huge win in very bad UBB rates however.
