Comcast was throttling BitTorrent. On Friday 1st August, FCC ruled against Comcast. Comcast is not allowed to block or throttle any P2P traffic. FCC pushes for strict net neutrality (regardless of the legality or illegality of the transferred data). Nevertheless, FCC did not fine Comcast.
FCC’s message is clear. Illegal activity on P2P cannot be fought through throttling or any other type of bandwidth shaping.
