Comcast’s ridiculous explanation for why it wants to limit your Netflix binges

In case you don’t know, Comcast is starting to get more aggressive in rolling out its data caps across the country. Many of its customers have complained loudly about the unfairness of these data caps despite the fact that Comcast insists they’re all about “fairness.” In a new Bloomberg article about Comcast’s data caps, the company tries to explain why these caps are really about fairness to its customers, although in reality this justification is a giant pile of nonsense.

This new startup could make my dream of dumping Comcast a reality

For years I have had a dream of having actual competition for my home broadband services. This is because Comcast has had a monopoly on broadband services in my Boston neighborhood for as long as I’ve lived here.
