    So Comcast will appropriate customer electricity for purposes of running its own public WiFi system? One that anyone with Comcast login credentials can use, regardless of whether or not you have granted them guest access?

    Edit: Might as well throw it out now. All those Comcast wireless routers would make one heck of a tracking/surveillance system if they phoned home MAC Addresses from client probes.
