So we can't use torrents anymore?

Probably soon, yeah. They'll probably try to "filter" USENET, block ports, block torrents, block all P2P actually, and they'll have to monitor datastreams. Plus they'll probably turn over any information to the RIAA and MPAA at will without any court orders or legal procedures.

What sucks is AT&T owns most of the US Geographical area.

I hope NOBODY signs up for U-Verse or their crappy PayTV crap.

And I hope they get sued constantly everytime they screwup, which will be early and often.

Well, I'd guess you might get away with something like Relakks . . . or various other encryption schemes.

It's not that hard. Rogers (ISP in Canada) blocks them very well, via deep packet inspection.
