You ever wonder why some places have cable modem but not DSL? That's usually because the telcos can't get the bandwidth there.

That is a laughable statement.

In many places there is no real ability to tag the voice traffic with a higher class service, so it has to contend just like everyone else.

This is also a laughable statement as Comcast (the provider in question) has at least, DOCSIS 1.1 on all parts of their network, if not newer than that.

The DOCSIS 1.1 specification has this capability (multiple service flows). DOCSIS 1.1 is of April 1999 vintage.

rest of your post also questionable.
