Internet service providers are having their network capacities put to the test as more people take to telecommuting (or are simply stuck at home) during the current pandemic. This has resulted in some throttling, and not just by video streaming services like Netflix. Cox Communications, the third largest cable provider in the US, is crimping upload speeds in some neighborhoods where overall usage is high.

That may not seem unusual on the surface, but what makes it a bit more controversial is that Cox is seemingly punishing lighter usage customers who happen to live near customers who have been flagged for “excessive usage.”
