Weeee Comcast could get what they deserve… but probably not

“A study conducted last year by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and independently verified by the Associated Press revealed that Comcast interferes with BitTorrent and Gnutella sessions by sending TCP “reset” packets to users. Despite the growing body of unambiguous evidence, Comcast still denies allegations that it specifically targets BitTorrent. Comcast vice president David Cohen told us that the company’s traffic control mechanisms conform to the FCC’s definition of “reasonable network management” practices (which are allowed by the FCC), but critics don’t agree that Comcast’s management is anything “reasonable.” The FCC today indicated that “reasonable” practices should be transparent.””Numerous advocacy groups have filed FCC complaints over the issue, and they contend that Comcast’s behavior is a flagrant violation of the network neutrality principles outlined in the FCC’s Internet Policy Statement. A class-action lawsuit against Comcast over traffic blocking is also in the works. Aggravated consumers and digital rights activists aren’t the only ones calling foul. Comcast’s competitors, who have traditionally expressed criticism of network neutrality, have also called for an FCC investigation of Comcast’s BitTorrent blocking.” –Ars Technica

God I hope the FCC sticks it to them, although I doubt they will judging from personal experience..
