A significant amount of normal Internet usage by our customers does not last that long. For example, most downloads would have completed within that time, and the majority of streaming and downloading will not exceed the threshold to be eligible for congestion management. And the majority of longer-running applications, such as VoIP, video conferencing, and streaming video content (including HD streaming on most sites) will not exceed these thresholds either.
I still think it sucks. It’s about time that Comcast built up their networks to a specification that allows not only for present usage but near future usage too. More and more data of all kinds is going to be transmitted via the Internet, much of which isn’t illegal P2P either.
I watch video, stream audio (internet radio stream). Comcast wants to dissuade its users from these kind of activities as they want subscribers to sped huge amounts of money on ever more premium rate TV channels.

I like a wide variety of music. As I’ve mentioned in previous postings, I haven’t bought a CD in years, however, I do subscribe to Napster. No, not the bad old P2P Napster, but the legal one. It’s $14.99 a month, for as much music as you care to download and listen to on your computer or your mp3 player. So DRM rears it’s ugly head, but you can always buy the downloads separately without it.
Alan Jackson is a country artist I’ve liked for a number of years. Up-tempo and mostly foot tapping light songs, not too much of the dog died stuff, and this is one of Alan’s brightest albums, and it’s also a whole album, and his first album too, that’s full of entirely original songs.
You can listen to the album here….
