That's kind of brilliant. Comcast wouldn't have to identify or differentiate speed test data at all.

Just check - if the customer does a dns hit to speedtest.net, then throttle them up for the next 15 minutes (right before they even initiate the test). It's not even clear that it's "cheating" according to the letter of the law.
