Comcast Repeats P2P Denial, FCC Action Sought

By Staff Published on .

The cable giant released a statement saying it does not, has not and will not block peer-to-peer services, but that it does “engage in reasonable network management to provide all of our customers with a good Internet experience.” Which leaves room for the company to manage data flow such that P2P services are affected adversely, Andy Patrizio notes. A coalition of public interest groups asked the FCC to halt Comcast’s practice of treating file sharing differently from other traffic, seeking fines of $195,000 for every affected user, Staci Kramer writes.
