Vuse complains about Comcast throttling

Some believe that rather than peering being the evil that Hollywood claims, P2P will be the savior of the internet as video continues to block up bandwidth. Which is what is so significant about Vuse's complaint last week to the FCC alleging Comcast was limiting applications using the peer-to-peer bit torrent protocol. Vuse is a start up and offers near HD video based on peering technology.

The suit alleges Comcast's limits on peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent violates federal computer fraud laws and is in breach of contract well as anti-fraud advertising statutes.

Comcast says it was only managing its network -- one of the biggest domestic systems in the world. Maybe. But the Vuse action is a quick reminder that the argument about net neutrality is not about to go away.
