[ NNSquad ] Re: Comcast using Sandvine to Interfere with P2P

The really ironic part is that their ham handed attempts to squeeze a few
more bits-per-second out of their circuits is probably costing them far more
for the Sandvine appliances and its' management overhead, i.e., day-to-day
maintenance, monitoring along with yearly maintenance contract costs, and
the initial capital outlay for a system wide high-dollar solution.
I'm willing to wager that Comcast was probably not even hitting a break even
point on savings when compared to the costs of the solution. 

How expensive could it possibly be for one of the countries largest
providers to just bite the bullet and engineer the circuits for the load and
be done with it?

Now add in the PR hit which is leading to Congress and FCC getting involved
is going to cause some folks high up on the org-chart at Comcast to depart
in order to "spend more time with their families!"
