When Pigs Fly Out of My Butt

Well this story is just about the biggest lot of unadulterated, happy corporate PR horseshit that I've ever seen. I don't believe for one minute that Comcrap will completely get rid of the blocking/throttling. They'll just do it a lot more quietly now that all eyes are upon them. And in another 3-6 months from now, after the EFF has gone away and subscribers stop watching, they'll return to the practice.

This press release says absolutely nothing about getting rid of blocking/throttling, so I'm not sure what let you to that determination. And you're right, no residential ISP is going to completely get rid of blocking/throttling.

Or they remove the throttles and start up a pay-per-byte plan and someone ends up with a $1200 bill for "overage charges".
