Caps Start

Comcast started emailing customers about bandwidth caps. That means that some users will be moving to DSL. It also means a good opportunity for YOU. I would be spreading the word that With Joe's ISP, you get the Whole Internet - No Limits.

I realize for Wireless ISP's, Comcast, TWC and Frontier putting caps on means that they can too. But putting usage caps on is different from Network Management - as we will find out in court later this year as Comcast takes the FCC to court.
