hmmm ... my opinion .... ISP should not limiting the user freedoms i think, except they got a caution from the country goverment, or they could give the user a good reason, without any reason, limitting user freedoms is cut out our rights isn't it ? if they act like that, we as customer have the option to move to the other ISP, there should be always choice for customer, customer is a king.

So any of you out there currently using Comcast, please call their customer service dept and complain. After you have found an alternate ISP ask to discontinue service. We all need to stand together. Though we surf the internet, that does not make us consumer serfs.

IP liar - There are ways to bypass ISP throttling. One way is using Tor. Tor doesn't like you downloading torrent files down through it's servers but sending your phony IP to the tracker can hide your butt pretty well from a lot of folks, and using the IP Blocker hides you even better.

Thank you for your very creative answer. Though we nerds can and will do this, I hope we never have to simply because we have to. I like using the above mentioned techniques only because I can.

Yes this is why no one should get COMCAST or AT&T is always better to get private ISP that respects your privacy and freedom... even if you pay more. I think is everyone boy cotted comcast and those other evil websites .. then they would get out of business.. and the net would be more free. But I would never get comcast.. they invade privacy.. and limit access to some parts of the net...

It is a disgrace to the human race. If we band together and spread the word, sign petitions, contact our congressmen, boycott monopolistic ISPs who are violating our freedoms we might just stand a chance in keeping the internet free. I like what CraftyCorner has to say about this, only I hope we never have to resort to such tactics.
