    Comcast and Vonage, new best friends

    Comcast and Vonage have promised to never fight again and to work together to balance “network congestion” with “ensuring that over-the-top VoIP services like Vonage work well for consumers.” Wow, does that mean Comcast is promising to stop blocking services like Vonage from running on its network?
