Studies Criticize Comcast For Upload Tampering

August 6, 2008

Comcast is getting plenty of criticism after two separate studies found evidence the Internet giant is interfering with computers involved in peer-to-peer file sharing.

"The most common belief about this is they think file share users are using up too much of their network capacity," said Seth Shoen, Electronic Frontier Foundation.

"You know when you're making a telephone call, the phone company doesn't pop up in the middle of the call and start advertising to you or say 'we think you made too many calls today, so we're going to start adding some noise to your conversation," said Shoen.
