Is it possible that Comcast is throttling to ensure equal access to all of its customers? I think the point made elsewhere in TR about the alternative of ISP's metering might be a far worse fate than letting the ISP control bandwidth usage on those things that have very VERY high bandwidth usage. There is only so much to go around. Seems to me this is similar to the Black Friday sales where items are limited to "X per customer".
