This fight never had anything to do with "network capacity". They are saying the don't have enough capacity to stream internet video. Yet they do have enough capacity to stream HDTV 24x7 - so longs as you are paying Time Warner for it.
It takes a really strong streak of paranoia and delusion for that argument to not make sense to you.

I know data is just this one cable running into your house for you, but believe it or not it takes some mighty powerful infrastructure to stream porn into millions of houses 24 hours a day.
