    as one of the comments says and the article aswell it would only affect less than 1% of users, so why do it?. simply money gathering if people go over and want more data

    Illustration: What a broadband meter might look like
    Clearly 'shopped, you can see that the top-left corner of the LCD screen lines up with the edge, but the top right corner is waaay off. Also, I'm pretty sure the EFF don't certify bandwidth meters.

    Also, I can tell by the pixels.

    Cable I think is the (cheapest) common TV broadcast method. Have to get SurferJoe on the line. Still, their broadband is fast as sh*t over there, and you know what they say: The faster the connection, the more data you'll be likely to download.
