you do realize comcast is already doing this right?

comcast already has a cap in place as well, and of course they have no tools to warn you when you get near the cap or let you check on your usage
the conserving bandwidth is a joke, it's not a resource to be depleted, the bandwidth only exists for this one millisecond in time, what isn't used is lost forever. We already have fairly slow internet compared to much of western europe (which I am sure has more regulation), what this really translates to is that the ISP's want to advertise the highest speeds, get the customers and money and not provide the service
if comcast can't provide what they state then they need to reduce their listed speeds, if they cannot serve 12 Mbit then they need to advertise 3Mbit and reduce accordingly.
If a restaurant said they had the best rolls and they were unlimited and free with a meal and the you asked for a third and they got pissed and said "no more, you've had more then most people do" we would get pissed, but for some reason that is ok for an ISP to do...
cable is killing itself due to squeezing every last short term profit out of it.
land phone lines did the same as they never lowered prices to compete with cell phones
news agencies lost viewers when they went to wire services instead of their own in depth journalism for short term profits
and now the internet as we know it is at risk due to this short term profit taking instead of improving their networks
