Didn't some EU countries force ISP competition to prevent this monopolistic behavior? On a scale of 1 year to never, how long will it take the US to do the same?

While i hate comcast for many reasons, speed and reliability are not a reason. Comcast is much like verizon, they charge a premium because they are the best and fastest. That cannot be argued.

comast to users: stop using the service you're paying $70+ a month to us to use. we are just using the service as a guise to milk money from you.

good job comcast. hope one day your greed will be your down fall.

paying per byte is a perfectly fair and valid way to charge for internet

Actually its not. Working for comcast the cost difference between a customer that used 100gb or 3tb was about 10c. The bandwidth is there weather its used or not.

Lol we had speeds up to 250mb at our office so people would bring in laptops with external hard drives and torrent all day, people would do all there steam downloads. Hell we had a big screen tv in our break room, had tvs with cable boxes at each desk and we were able to watch anything we wanted. We had all the tvs in our call center ordering mma, boxing, wrestlemania and then once a month all boxes got zeroed out. It makes no cost difference if they had people downloading tb of data.

I immediately went and found the other options in my area one that i switched to at home was DSL from century link i get 40/20 from them with no cap. Not only is the upload 10x faster than what the cable company was giving me but i went though 2tb in the first month with no questions. The other company i switched to at my small business was a small local wisp (Wireless ISP) they give me a 30/30 with bursts up to 100/100 even has a better ping that my DSL but they do impose a 1tb "cap" its a soft cap with them if im causing network issues due to high consumption they will work with me to get a faster dedicated connection.
CenturyLink has a 250GB cap at all tiers but the slowest (which is 150GB-capped) last I checked, but I only know of about half a dozen instances where they enforced it. You also have to be within short walking distance of a central office to get 40/20, and very few people are that can afford it.
