thats great news now hopefully they actualy do something about it and force comcast to take sandvine down. Or even beter Comcast get Comcast to voluntarily do it before they face legal action.

"In an investigation last year, The Associated Press found that Comcast in some cases hindered file sharing by subscribers who used BitTorrent, a popular file-sharing program. The findings, first reported Oct. 19"

-I like how the Assoicated Press took all the credit for finding out Comcast was blocking Bittorrent traffic, when really it was a user HERE on DSLR.

Typical media at its best.
