"Freedom of the press" doesn't mean you get to use everyone's press

within their right to cut people off as clients or from the net or
both. It's their wires.
And the customer has the right to not give the ISP their hard earned
Although the waters are somewhat if ComCast is like the average cell
phone company and asks that you agree to give them a certain amount of
money in order to get the service... But, if those terms aren't
acceptable, then why sign up for the service in the first place?
Anyway, back to work for me.
