On BitTorrent, FCC Chastises Comcast

[qi:014] I love the irony of the FCC and its complete and utter lack of rationality. It continues to show its Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde personality. The very same week it allows two satellite radio companies — Sirrus & XM — to merge, overlooking its very own reservations, promoting monopoly in that business, it is telling Comcast to stop messing around with P2P traffic. There will be no fines for Comcast for blocking the traffic.

Now you know I don’t care much for Comcast’s traffic managing ways — having written about it time and again — but this just seeks like an opportunistic and populist-baiting move from an organization that has lately stopped putting people first and started bowing and kneeling to large corporations, instead. And why pick on just Comcast? Why not go after other players like Cox as well? Why doesn’t FCC intervene in the metered Internet issue – that isn’t good for consumers either. Does anyone else feel that FCC has started to display a bizzare streak that shames Roger Clemens?
