    They do that already (as do DSL providers), but the hogs are still a big problem nonetheless.

    No provider could engineer their network in a way that assumes someone who pays for 1.5 Mbps will use 1.5 mbps 24 hrs./day and still offer a reasonable price. A single CMTS supports a maximum of 30 or 40 Mbps downstream IN TOTAL.

    Hence there are vendors like Ellacoya that are trying to make a business of controlling the hogs.
