Just months after publically unveiling an experimental technology that produces next-generation gigabit Internet speeds on cable networks that are already in place throughout much of the country, Comcast's impending super high-speed Internet service has officially gone live -- at least for one Philadelphia-area home.
Earlier this year, the Federal Communications Commission voted in favor of stronger rules to keep Internet service providers from favoring some data traffic on the Internet over others. The February FCC decision was hailed as a victory by Net Neutrality advocates, or those who believe that the only free Internet is one where "all data is treated equally" by the companies that transmit it.
Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen has come out against a statement he made earlier in the week about the future of Comcast broadband and data usage caps. While Cohen emphasized that there are "no plans to announce a new data usage policy," the real truth is that you should expect data caps from more ISPs than just Comcast in the future.
