WOW, what a bunch of BS. Can't compete on the merits of your actual service? Then bad mouth the competition and their customers.
Ever heard of streaming TV and movies? More and more people get their media online. Imagine a typical household in the near future...
You've got mom and dad streaming a full HD, 1080p movie to the TV in their bedroom, the daughter is in her room on her Macbook doing HD video chat with her boyfriend AND streaming music in the background or downloading songs from iTunes. In the next room over the eldest son is playing online games while his younger brother streams an HDTV kids show.
Try the above scenario with a 6Mbps cable line and see how happy everyone is. The other thing to consider is that without the high speeds who is going to roll out a service reliant on high speed broadband?
Basically what you have here is traditional media fighting a losing battle. They see that in a few years they will be dumb pipes delivering content that customers are paying someone else to view. Internet services are typically the least profitable for a company like Comcast. I am actually a reseller and from speaking with my rep they make way more money on TV and then phone. Of course as services like Skype, Hulu, Netlix, etc. proliferate less customers are using or paying for those services.
These monthly data caps, low speed tiers, and if they are allowed to non-neutral network administration are stop gaps that will disappear once technology allows more companies to provide Internet services. Google is slowly rolling out their fiber, we've got sonic net, etc., a lot of wireless carriers just really getting into the mix, eventually they'll be too many options for the big duopoly's to continue and dominate the market. There is a generational change happening too, the people of my parent's generation only use the Internet semi-regularly on average and don't see it as a integral part of their lives. Our generation views it as necessary as the telephone.
