Comcast Actively Screws W/ File Sharing


Argument distilled: "it's our network, we can do what we want, screw you if you're a customer who actually needs to do this." (The article points out multiple legit uses for peer-to-peer beyond music piracy.)

"Comcast's approach to traffic shaping is different because of the drastic effect it has on one type of traffic — in some cases blocking it rather than slowing it down — and the method used, which is difficult to circumvent and involves the company falsifying network traffic."
