The article discusses the issue concerning the failure of broadband-service providers to determine the finite amount of bandwidth they allocate to customers in the U.S. The author explains that all providers require residential customers to agree not to use too much bandwidth. However, only three service providers that include Cox Communications Inc., Shaw Communications Inc. and Qwest Communications International Inc. explicitly state limits on bandwidth use.
