How is it fair? Business accounts cost more because you get uptime guaranties
and real support and depending on the type of connection you may be allowed
to use your maximum bandwidth all of the time. (Though the latter service
typically is going to cost more than 3x the residential rate.)

Bull. You don't get "real" support unless you're with a dedicated ISP such as a data centre. Cox, Charter, Time Warner, AT&T, Verizon all give basic support staff to standard /and/ business customers. I know because I've been on the phone with them. Have you?


While blocking these ports may actually be helpful for some people (to limit
damage when they aren't capable of securing their systems), there really
isn't a good reason for this for people that don't need that protection.
There isn't any basis there to charge people several times extra in order
to not have to check things in their routers. If anything the people that
need those blocks are the ones that should be getting charged more.


I agree with you there.
