Thank you for a good laugh. I liked the Comcast analogy. And since I am
still paying for my student loans, I would agree with you that I paid
for my Internet connectivity while I was at school.

I completely forgot about that issue, any parent who has paid to send a
student to one of our institutions knows that almost nothing we provide
is FREE! Just like the Comcast Triple Play we provide a bundle of
services with one low bill. :)
I will also point out that one of the highest correlations to Internet
use is a college education. While those students probably are not your
direct customer now, in a few years we will be done with them and then
they will likely be one of your customers.
