[AP] FCC ready to curb ISP traffic management - Page 2

post #11 of 22
1.) My money is on the fact that nobody on the FCC knows what they speak of considering that they feel "Broadband" = 256Kbps/Down

2.) Theres nothing wrong with the networks...BT and many other methods of FileSharing are morbidly inefficient

3.) If people don't like it - we can all go back to DSL and Dial-Up

Nothing is going to happen...everyone screams "FCC" and "BBB" everytime they're unhappy.

It's not like its a monopoly - if you don't like your ISP's practices...go to another one. Now if you cant then QQ

I can't wait till the day FiOS is available in my area so I can leave behind Comcast and their brutal vicegrip on my e-peen.

I guess you haven't been reading the news lately that Verizon is in this to and wanting very much to be able to do the same thing.

Broadband is ADSL. It has nothing to do with speed.

And yes there is a problem, they are overselling. They have a 10Mb line for 10 houses, yet instead of advertising 1Mb for each, they work on the basis not everyone will be using it at the same time, and sell 10Mb each, which is ridiculous.

They do not have what they are selling, it's like a hotel overbooking.

Here in the UK, ADSL is pretty much it, if you are lucky you might be able to get cable in your area, or ADSL2 if you live in the right area, but for most places, there is a theoretical max of 8megabit, and most people live a distance away from the exchange and will thus only get around 1-2megabit.

Uh, what? Bittorrent is the most efficient way to distribute files, just think of Blizzard. Imagine if 10 million people tried to download a large patch from their servers at the same time. It's only inefficient if there are only a few people sharing. The more people that use it, the faster BT is.

I think he is referring to the adverse effect it has on your connectivity. Bittorrent can actually cause you to lose connections because of the enormous strain it places on the network.

BitTorrent has a relatively high overhead and it has a relatively large number of connections. In theory, this should not really be a problem (high as the overhead may be, it's still tiny in comparison). And it's not really a good excuse.

BT isn't the good for ISPs, but it is good for users. ISPs are companies, and companies work by pleasing consumers. Except when there is no competition, then companies can screw over the consumer as much as they want.

Quite honestly, this is both good and bad. It is good that the government isn't going to allow ISPs to distinguish between traffic types, but by the same token it is complete crap if my neighbor is a bandwidth hog and it affects my internet experience - especially if this person is being a criminal with their internet activies.
