It appears that the FCC is going to be looking into allegations that Comcast has been throttling back speeds for certain users who use sites such as BitTorrent. Comcast has been playing the part as ‘nanny’ in controlling how much users are able to download. The FCC is interested in your opinion about this practice and you can send an electronic comment at the link below.

If you are a Comcast customer this is your chance to be heard. Even if you are not a Comcast customer you may wish to comment before your ISP follows the policy that it appears that Comcast may be using.

What do you think? Should ISP’s be allowed to manage the speed of what we download?

Comments welcome.
