The best way to stop Comcast's data caps from ruining the Internet

We’ve made the case several times now that Comcast’s data cap scheme is absolutely horrible for the open Internet, particular since it’s decided to exempt its own Stream TV service from any usage limits. Essentially, Comcast is creating its own separate Internet in which its own TV streaming services don’t face the limitations that rival services such as Netflix, Hulu or Sling TV have to face thanks to Comcast’s usage-based billing. Writing over at Medium, Harvard Law School professor and longtime cable industry critic Susan Crawford explains that the best way to combat Comcast’s data caps isn’t through additional regulation but through more competition.

The story is too old to be commented.
