FCC No to Comcast Slowing Down BitTorrent Transfer Rate

Comcast, the largest cable company in the U.S., had claimed that BitTorrent traffic consumed a disproportionate amount of its network's bandwidth, degrading the Internet access of other customers. To 'fix' this, Comcast had installed equipment that slowed down, not block -- file transfers using BitTorrent. This move led public advocacy groups Free Press and Public Knowledge to file a complaint against the network provider, a complaint that the Federal Communications Commission upheld against Comcast.
