Why cable companies limit upstream bandwidth

August 8th, 2008

series of tubesI have always cursed Comcast for limiting my upstream bandwidth. It takes so long to to upload pictures to smugmug, VoIP can get garbled, etc. So, today I have AT&T installing u-verse into my house so that I increase my upstream bandwidth by a factor of 20x or more. Yeah!

But for even longer than I have cursed Comcast, I have always wondered: why do they limit the upstream traffic? Well, now I am now enlightened. In short: Channel 2.
