Followed by Class Action Lawsuit Recovery Fee
Beautiful! I'm all in favor of ISP's exercising their right to manage the resources they're responsible for but only when it's done completely transparently. All it would take is a teeny little disclaimer explaining which protocols they block or throttle to get my seal of approval. That way, customers know exactly what they're paying for.
It's time to let go of TDM people. If it's not IP-based, it's crap!

I found the key to success but somebody changed the lock.
Re: Screw The Plaintiffs Of course it is pointless. The only ones who benefit are the bloodsucking waste of skin lawyers who should save the nation by setting themselves on fire. Class Actions should be opt in instead of opt out but that is what you get when the Trial Lawyers types like Fmr Sen and current adulterer Edwards bribe Congress. Of course we should all feel good about paying our high insurance premiums so that these worthless whores can build their two Americas starting with their own 23,000 sqft houses. However, bloodsucking leech shitheads or not, Comcast will continue to abuse their market position and throttle people with regular 3X inflation price increases. They don't need lawyers to give them any excuse. Brian Roberts' video walls, 5th Ave Apple Store stairs in his office and his shiny new ivory tower are all the excuse they need.

True... I just find most class action lawsuits to be pointless.
All lawsuits are pointless... Unless you are the injured party, and unable to get the person/entity at fault to pay a "reasonable settlement" for your damages
said by pnh102: The advantatge of "class" action, is greater weight/shared legal cost for the planitifs, the downside is everyone in the class receives an "Average" settlement rather than the most damaged receiving the most, and the barely damaged receiving very little.
The plaintiffs receive token, laughable "rewards"
Of course I personally believe that every lawsuit should be presumed to be 100% frivolous and phony unless proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be otherwise.
The overall award is intended to be punitive againist the offender, but currently the courts reduce MOST judgements, below any true financial punishment (given the delays/interest/etc) the main cost now is the PR value (nil to out of business COs, little to major corp's )who spend more on a single "feel good about us" ad then they pay for a typical settlement.
every lawsuit/legal challange should stand on its merits, not the size of the class/corp/parties sueing/defending.

said by goofy01:And guess what subsidizes *fair* HSI rates!
Actually, Comcast has been good in the past about not raising the rates of HSI. Now their rates for Cable TV, that is a whole different subject.
thats why everyone has caps, to prevent cord cutting because VIDEO is what keeps hsi affordable.
