Speaking of comcast, looks like they might be in trouble for all that 
traffic shaping.

Comcast could receive hefty FCC fine for throttling Bit Torrent traffic

Maybe, Maybe not but any improvement over the 6-8Mbps speeds they have
now would be welcome.  I do bet that they will shape the traffic to give
priority to HD Ondemand and their VOIP content. That said I bet that
Comcast will increase their shaping program beyond p2p traffic, well
beyond.
