From what I read, CMTS can be used as a traffic shaper. While that does have a legitimate purpose, it seems to me that it could also be used to throttle specific connections. I will admit that it has been quite a while since I ran a tracert, but I do not remember ever seeing a CMTS number sequence before. The fact that it now appears, after receiving a warning from my ISP about my data usage cap, a couple of months ago, and being advised by others here, that an ISP might opt to throttle a connection, rather than charging for overage, makes me suspect that is the case here. If that were only being done when I had reached my usage cap, I wouldn't mind too much, but it seems to be the way of things regardless of the time of the month, or my usage.

Weird that the "10..." shows as the first hit on mine... I'm also on cable...
