LXer: Comcast CEO Defends Caps: Claims Broadband's Like Gasoline

Published at LXer:

But according to Roberts, caps only make sense because broadband is just like gasoline and electricity."Just as with every other thing in your life — if you drive a hundred thousand miles or a thousand miles you buy more gasoline," the CEO claimed. "If you turn on the air conditioning at 60 versus 72, you consume more electricity," he said. "The same is true for [data] usage, so I think the same for a wireless device — the more bits you use, the more you pay."
