We agree — and that is our practice. No blocking. We agree — and that is our practice. No throttling. We agree — and that is our practice. Increased transparency. We agree — and that is our practice. No paid prioritization. We agree — and that is our practice. Really? Comcast conveniently fails to address the giant elephant in the room whose name is Netflix.

...is all of those "that is our practice" are because they are legally obligated to as part of their consent agreement for the acquisition of NBC. Left to their own devices, they'd be as bad--or worse--than Verizon.

You might have said what MTA you were running and I missed it, but if you're using anything remotely flexible (postfix, for example) you can relay your yahoo, gmail, and hotmail emails through the Comcast relay, and direct deliver everything else (better logging).

Ditto! I had the same issue and solved it the same way. Comcast has an SMTP relay that will blanket allow all internal ip's. I simply pointed mine to there smtp relay and it was allowed.

External IPs with authentication, too (cell phone on carrier network, for example).

I have verified. I am not on any RBLs as I mentioned in my original question. As for whether or not my IP range is residential, I was told when I signed up that it was not. However, I have no way that I know of to verify that.

Not natural monopolies? How many different sets of copper do you think should be run to the same address? How many different water or sewage lines?

A natural monopoly doesn't stop being a natural monopoly because it's regulated. It stops being a natural monopoly when the space restrictions and barriers to entry go away.

And if the barrier to entry is the government? "Sets of fiber" and "sewage lines" are straw men when government regulations even preclude other technologies (see Google fiber, other municpal broadband) from being used in a monopolistic territory. Yes, sewage is a natural monopoly. Cable and internet aren't.
