This is what *should* happen, and what *should* be in their TOS.  But what
did the customer buy?  According to standard comcast terms, probably
Unlimited usage.  Limiting it afterwards, especially filtering specific
services is a problem.

My isp is unlimited, but does mention in very easy to find parts of the
contract that after 12gb, they might rate-limit (not block) certain P2P
services.   Great, they were up-front about it, had reasonable amounts, and
I know what I'm getting.  If they hadn't told me, but did that anyways, I'd
be pissed.
