Misleading information given here as disadvantages of cable telephony[edit]

I have once again removed some misinformation that was in this article pertaining to disadvantages to cable telephony. The text in question gives the impression to a reader that quality of cable telephony can be affected by high internet use or people watching HD programming. First off, the latter is totally false. Internet congestion is NOT affected by HD TV viewing in anyway on a cable system. HD TV programming over a cable system is on channels that are separate from the channels used to provision internet to users on a specific node. In DOCSIS, the channels used for internet traffic are different from those used by video channels. Secondly, The Packet Cable specification used by cable systems and their hardware specifies that cable telephony traffic communicates over a separate managed IP network and using QoS safeguards employing "priority delivery "on the cable system.
