Stop stealing my bandwidth
A recent article on Broadband reports states that Time Warner Cable (TWC) is going to be implementing “packet shaping“. Which simply means you are punished if your a power user, so instead of upgrading the system they decide to punish you. Their argument is that “power users” hurt the rest of the network and in a way it may be true, still it doesn’t mean this is the correct action.
I am not with TWC but I know a few people that are and overall this is just the beginning.. how long until Comcast doesÂ this and you know it is going to happen.
What can the customer do? Nothing really, cancel your service (for now) or go back to non-rich web viewing. For now, just speak up and let your ISP know this isn’t going to fly.. maybe with a little luck they will smarten up…
