Asthe debate for net neutrality still rages, the FCC continued its hearingsinto Comcast’s throttling of P2P traffic:
"FCC Chairman Kevin Martin,testifying before a Senate committee, said Comcast's blocking of BitTorrent P-to-P(peer-to-peer) traffic appeared to happen when there wasn't network congestion,in contrast to claims from the broadband provider"
IfComcast is in fact taking a more draconian stance on P2P traffic than theywould like folks to believe, this could be the definitive move that finally pushesCongress to enact net neutrality legislation. The irony is that P2P traffic isnot the largest bandwidth hog anymore on the Internet. That claim now goes tovideo streaming and downloading via HTTP--commonly referred to as the “YouTubeEffect.” Which begs the question, are ISPs also throttling YouTube traffic?
Well, Comast should limit the internet. After all, the internet is a series of tubes. Man I love that speech.
