Comcast, in responding to last week’s AP investigation that found it blocks BitTorrent traffic, said today it only “delays” the traffic and doesn’t outright block it. You know, like picking up a phone and getting a busy signal. Right…
Ladies and germs, if you believe that line of rubbish you should be ashamed of yourself.
The Philly-based company said it has a “responsibility to provide all of our customers with a good Internet experience and we use the latest technologies to manage our network so that they can continue to enjoy these applications.” And what, exactly, constitutes “good”? Wouldn’t, I don’t know, being able to use the Blizzard updater effectively be “good”?
I really, really hope the more mainstream (i.e. not tech-specific) press picks up on this nonsense and someone holds Comcast accountable.
