A new protocol won't work. Instead of using a "tcpkill" approach, 
Comcast will just try something else, like block UDP on those ports at 
their firewall for clients who transfer too much, especially if they 
congest the network. Worse yet, they could just block UDP altogether for 
so-called abusive customers.

The only way to beat a bad ISP is to stop being their customer. No 
protocol or technology can change that. Ditch Comcast. Get XMission. Be 
happy.
