FCC Complaint Filed Over Comcast P2P Blocking

A handful of consumer groups have filed a complaint with the FCC over Comcast’s delaying some BitTorrent traffic. The complaint seeks fines of $195,000 for each Comcast subscriber affected by the traffic blocking as well as a permanent injunction barring the ISP from blocking P2P traffic. Comcast’s defence is bogus, said Free Press policy director Ben Scott. The FCC needs to take immediate action to put an end to this harmful practice. Comcast’s blatant and deceptive BitTorrent blocking is exactly the type of problem advocates warned would occur without Net Neutrality laws — via Slashdot
