Comcast & The Greedy Pigs

Bandwidth Hogs (Pig is also known as a hog, but bandwidth pig does not sound right) are finding that Comcast is noticing their downloading ways, according to Contra Costa Times, and asking them to stop. Their bandwidth gluttony, the daily reports is overloading the network, slowing it down and basically causing problems. Cut back, or else, Comcast warns. Anyway the hogs are only 0.5 percent of the 4.8 million Comcast Broadband customers. Of course the great tech support at Comcast, cannot tell the problem hogs, by how much they have to cut back in terms of bandwidth consumption. I for one, believe that there should be a tiered broadband pricing. Guarantee me 5 megabits per second, take $75 a month, no problem. It would be a nice way of dealing with the problem pigs.
