I was under the impression that Comcast and TWC got rid of residential
users providing free wifi to their customers. Wasn't that some /. story
a while back?
It's sort of a funny issue. On the one hand, residential users are
powering the cable company's wifi for their other customers with no
compensation. On the other hand, a lot of their customers using others
wifi are likely to come under the sights of the RIAA/MPAA and their
racketeering cohorts. No?
