Why we mustn't trust Comcast

Essentially, the EFF said, the company was injecting forged data packets into the Internet in a way that caused users' connection programs to fail.

Comcast was "essentially deploying - against their own customers - techniques more typically used by malicious hackers," the EFF found. "Comcast is essentially behaving like a telephone operator that interrupts a phone conversation, impersonating the voice of each party to tell the other that 'this call is over, I'm hanging up.'"
