Comcast Corporation, one of the leading providers of Broadband Internet, Cable TV, and Telephone in the U.S., will begin slowing down traffic on its network. This new program is being referred to as "Fair-Share".
Users who negatively impair their network could expect to see speeds forcibly degraded for periods of 10 to 20 minutes.
These users should experience a connection equivalent to “a really good DSL experience,” says Comcast V.P. Mitch Bowling.
This has sparked criticism in regards to network neutrality. Readers may recall past articles regarding FCC inquiry's into their practices for BitTorrent users.
The company was recently found guilty on Aug 1st by the FCC for blocking traffic.
