Got a similar battle going on in Canada against Rogers (which is owned by AT&T). Rogers were under accusations that they were throttling some ip addresses because of excessive downloading, streaming or even playing games online. An independent study found it to be true and rogers barely got a slap on the wrist, even now I am with another ISP but Rogers owns the cable network so I am subject to their douchebaggery.
Thats kinda sad. I may not know much about the monopolies in US and Canada, but here where I live, our speeds are throttled if we cross 300GB monthly limit. The interesting part is that faster connections (10Mbps, 20Mbps and 50Mbps) has no such limit O_o
