Saying that it's a matter of perspective is a false dichotomy.

If the providers go away, the Comcast customers will pull traffic from 
other providers.

If the *customers* go away...

Nope; Comcast is acting as the agent of its customers to pull in traffic
they want to see, and if it isn't charging them enough for that, that is
*Comcast's* problem.  

It's really a bright-line answer.
