Comcast, is making attempts to leverage their power as one of few ISPs that offer high speed broadband connections to make customers who consume more, pay more. In theory, this proposal makes sense. If a consumer consumes more of a product, they should pay for it. However, this problem is a bit different in the realms of the internet, net neutrality and oligopolies. Since Comcast is one of the few providers of high speed broadband internet, it makes sense that users who pay for their service tend to consume larger amounts of data per month. Comcast has been measuring intakes of data from those that they consider to be "excessive consumers". Once users hit a certain amount of data consumed, Comcast limits the speed of their connection. This is not standard practice, yet, and can potentially violate the laws of net neutrality. By monitoring user habits and punishing certain users, slowing their connection speed down and/or charging them more for the continued high consumption, Comcast is denying a level of usability to the Netflix consumer and Netflix. Comcast prioritizes other connections over that of those who binge watch. This action directly violates the laws of net nuetrality. The FCC has made it illegal to do what is called throttling, or slowing of an internet connection: "A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service, insofar as such person is so engaged, shall not impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic on the basis of Internet content, application, or service, or use of a non-harmful device, subject to reasonable network management." (FCC, REPORT AND ORDER ON REMAND, DECLARATORY RULING, AND ORDER). As this is a direct violation of the rules laid out by the FCC, Comcast is in the wrong for throttling the user's internet speeds and measures should be taken to allow the free and unhindered use of the internet.
