Get ready to say goodbye to unlimited Internet access ???????? s. I thought this has got to be a joke but it's not.

Check this mess out here: [url=http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=5689480]Is the End of Unlimited Internet Near ?[/url]

I guess Comcast, Frontier and Time Warner Cable are trying to kill magicjack user's.

Does anyone know of any software that measures Bandwidth usage ?????????????

Not to worry the most you will ever use with the 711u codec is 100 megabytes per hour

I can see this happening on the lower tier "high speed" internet connections (i.e. $14.95/mo plans). However, there would be higher tier that would be offered I would suspect or they would be at a competitive disadvantage.

I'm not worried though since I have FIOS 20mb down/5mb up Smile

I think they will do it to whoever they want -- dependent on profit motive and what the market will bare (and by extension, what their competitors are doing).

I have known MANY that were hassled by Comcast, for example, for Port usage (i.e., web server, email server, etc.) -- not even bandwidth consumption.

FIOS is nice but they also block port 25 so you can't run your own SMTP/Email server.

Sample Blogs links about Comcast restrictions below; basically they forced some Users to Business accounts or to other services:
