(Follow-up to earlier posts on interference with Slingbox traffic)
Comcast had announced that it was making changes to the way network traffic was managed. Perhaps as a result of this change, this blogger has observed that a Slingbox located in a Philadelphia residence with Comcast broadband access no longer shows the strict cap at 350kbps for upstream bandwidth. During sustained streaming, bandwidth reported by Sling Player application regularly hovered around 800kbps. On the downside, the change in video quality between this new unrestricted stream and the artificially capped one was barely perceptible.
