[INQ] Verizon Boost P2P by 600%

VERIZON plans to help legal file sharers share stuff faster, reports AP. The company is to publish test results showing that an ISP working together with a file sharing software maker can accelerate downloads by an average of 60 per cent and by up to 600 times on fast Internet connections.

Verizon's approach is simple - rather than downloading bits of a file from various countries around the world and uploading other chunks to several others, it puts some intelligence into the whole operation and checks to see if the data is available locally rather than clogging up international bandwidth.

The file sharers get their stuff faster and other users - and the ISPs themselves - benefit from the bandwidth subsequently freed-up.

Verizon joined Yale researchers and file sharing outfit Pando Networks to set up the P4P Working Group last year, and came up with a system that connected users not randomly, but to others users nearby.

"This signifies a turning point in the history of peer-to-peer technology and ISPs," said Robert Levitan, Pando CEO "It will definitely show ISPs that the problem is not peer-to-peer technology, the problem is how you deploy it. It is possible to deploy P2P to their advantage."

Verizon reckons that, using a P2P network, a customer downloading a file gets around six per cent of the data from another customer in the same city, but in trials of P4P, this figure rose to almost 60 per cent, significantly reducing the company's cost of handling the traffic.

The technology could come into use as early as next month, when broadcaster NBC makes free downloads of its shows (funded by ads) available.

Verizon reckons that a one hour high definition show would normally cost the network about $1 to distribute, but with P4P, that cost can be cut by up to 90 per cent. µ

Bad idea; people will just download more stuff if it goes faster.

People will download stuff regardless.

It saves them money and now advertise they have 600% faster connections.... that means more money for them.

I am getting Verizon FiOS the second it is avalible in my area. Comcast sucks balls. It is ****ing expensive for marginal advertised bandwidth which is throttled to boot.

Verizon isn't perfect, but it is a hell of a lot better than Comcast, and I like their approach to file sharing as of late.

Umm, thats what they are encouraging? And they aren't just throwing more bandwidth at it. They are redistributing the bandwidth for more efficient usage.

People however, are impatient. If they can download faster, they will be able to download more stuff in the same timeframe, and will. This would foil Verizon's plan of quickly getting the p2p'ers out of the way, and make their network load worse instead of better.

Come on, you really think they don't know that 90% of file sharing is illegal? They are supporting the concept, not the content (at least not directly).

Of course they are going to say that. Would you expect them to come out and say "We are now supporting illegal filesharing and increasing bandwidth for it."?
