FCC Orders Comcast to Stop P2P Blocking

Illustration for article titled FCC Orders Comcast to Stop P2P Blocking

It comes as no surprise, but the FCC has officially ruled on the issue of Comcast P2P blocking and determined in a 3-2 vote that the company must stop blocking web access and fully disclose its traffic management practices to subscribers-but it will not be fined for its actions. It is only a small victory though-as we have already stated, this ruling does not prevent data caps from being implemented by ISPs and there is no guarantee that the ruling will hold up in court. Chances are the FCC does not legally have the authority to regulate ISPs in the first place. [Bloomberg]
