About the Author:
Throttling and bandwidth capping are a hot topic amongst websites devoted to bandwidth and ISPs. Both ISP defenders and attackers get heated up and come up w
ith reasons as to why capping and throttling is acceptable or unacceptable, and why it should be allowed or made illegal.
There are good reasons for both, however as a whole ISPs are blowing the "P2P is destroying the network" horn a bit too much. The fact is that P2P is not des
troying anything, on the contrary- it is just giving modern-day ISPs a good excuse to become traffic-cop and control what we can and cannot do with the bandw
idth we're paying them for. This will have grave consequences and haunt consumers for years to [url=http://www.lib.cit.nihon-u.ac.jp/out/light2.cgi]air jordan pas cher Top Certi[/url] come, IMHO.
One important aspect which will be affected greatly in the forseeable future is independent Voice over IP. Independent VoIP is competing against Comcast Digi
tal Voice, Time Warner Digital Phone, and other such VoIP-over-Cable offerings which typically cost 3-4 times what independent VoIP providers charge, and alm
ost as much as a regular phone would. In today's internet situation, consumers barely feel the difference between indy VoIP and cable-provided VoIP. It's pre
tty much all the same quality-wise.
Recently however, an alarming [url=http://www.tnnoa.com/parajumpers.php]Parajumpers Paris[/url] news came from Comcast when they circulated the following message among it's users:
"As part of our [url=http://www.cdille.fr/category/louboutin-site-officiel/]louboutin site officiel[/url] ongoing efforts to continuously improve the quality of our service, we are switching to a new network congestion management technique by the
end of the year. It is focused on managing network congestion only when and where it may occur. It will also replace the current technique and will help ensu
re that all of our customers receive their fair share of network resources..."
Comcast's FAQs proceed to indicate that Comcast VoIP Service will NOT be affected by this "network management" technique. So far all good, right? Wrong. What
happens if you're using an independent VoIP provider? you guessed right - it's your problem, not Comcast's! If you get flagged [url=http://www.viarosmini33.it]Woorich Outlet[/url] for throttling, not only will
your internet connection slow to a barely-usable state, should you dare to use a competing independent VoIP provider, your phone will also be affected and r
ange from bad quality to completely unusable.
Now, what exactly is stopping Comcast from sniffing your traffic (a practice they've already mastered), and once they figure out you are running VoIP applica
tions over your connection just flag you for throttling? sure, you're not using a lot of bandwidth, in your opinion - but then again Comcast neglected to [url=http://www.jewelmer.fr/category/pas-cher-air-jordan/]pas cher air jordan[/url] ind
icate what "a lot" actually means. There's nothing stopping them from arbitrarily deciding that [url=http://www.lotogame.fr/louboutin-pas-cher/]louboutin femme pas cher[/url] 180kbps usage (the amount of total bandwidth required for a t
ypical two-way VoIP conversation) over more than two minutes is "excessive". You'll end up getting great quality calls for the first two minutes, followed by
[url=http://www.riad-marrakesh.fr]abercrombie pas cher[/url] horrible quality for the rest of the call.
In essence, Comcast specifically, and other ISPs too, hold way [url=http://www.villacannizzo.it/category/hogan-outlet-milano]hogan outlet[/url] too much power in their hands, and [url=http://www.mxitcms.com/abercrombie/]abercrombie milano[/url] all signs show they intend to use it. Cable and DSL provide
rs are a monopoly [url=http://www.paris-jeux-casinos.fr/category/escarpins-louboutin/]escarpins louboutin[/url] in the US. Even if there is some minor competition it is typically between one cable provider and one DSL provider, which is not real compe
tition as they BOTH will "shape" your traffic - which is [url=http://webdesign2013fall.globalblogs.org/2013/11/20/editing-digital-audio-files-with-audacity/#comment-13199]Father From The Bride Wedding Speeches And Toasts[/url] just another word for "control what you can and can't do with the bandwidth you're paying for". Toda
y it is P2P applications. Tomorrow it is your Voice over IP, Video over IP, and any other applications which your ISP decides to ban.
And don't think you're safe if you don't use an independent VoIP provider, either. Every used Skype? how about video chat over MSN Messenger or Yahoo! Messen
ger? given the higher bandwidth these applications consume they are much more likely targets for the ISPs to start with. Now let's continue.. online gaming?
no online gaming here, takes too much bandwidth! And how about YouTube? surely YouTube would be alright... right? wrong again! YouTube [url=http://www.mifss.it/category/moncler-sito-ufficiale/]moncler sito ufficiale[/url] too consumes far more
bandwidth than VoIP and even some P2P applications [url=http://www.lotogame.fr/louboutin-pas-cher/]christian louboutin pas cher[/url] - which makes it a prime target for the I-want-to-control-your-traffic power-hungry modern ISP.
I think I've said enough, surely you too - my dear reader - can see where this is going, and what type of challenges businesses operating over the internet a
re going to have in years to come. For competition's sake and for the sake of a free market and a free internet - this needs to be stopped, and stopped fast
by laws and regulations - and the sooner the better. America is turning into a third world nation when it comes to internet connectivity, and you and I will
suffer the consequences while Comcast's CEO buys another yacht and private plane while ensuring shareholders that the competition is gone!
I wish you all a very happy, unthrottled experience with your ISP, VoIP, and other applications!
