Rant: Why ISPs shouldn't also provide TV service

I have to say, coming from someone who lives in the U.S., that Comcast is almost the exact same. They cap bitTorrent, Limewire, and the like, don't give you the speed you pay for, charge you out the butt, and don't provide the Internet to people outside of towns and subdivisions. I won't be surprised when they follow Roger's lead and do the same thing. I hope that Xohm (4G mobile broadband) turns out to be fast, and have lower prices. I'm afraid that it could turn into another Comcast. But at least you get it everywhere.

It also pisses me off Roger's is calling this an improvement and modifying Google's page. Isn't that illegal?

Looks like we'll be relying on some hopefully tough lobbying from Google to prevent this. I heard they were against it in the past. Cause if it happens, I might as well have dial-up again.
