Formal Complaint

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Free Press and Public Knowledge file this complaint regarding Comcast's practices of

secretly degrading applications on its broadband network. Comcast, the nation's number two

provider of high-speed Internet access, is blatantly violating the FCC's Internet Policy Statement

by degrading a range of peer-to-peer applications. Comcast has also engaged in deceptive

practices and continues to do so. It falsely denied degrading peer-to-peer applications and now

continues to degrade applications without informing users and while advertising access to the

"Internet." The FCC should immediately enjoin this discrimination and impose forfeitures on


I. Facts

Comcast is secretly degrading peer-to-peer protocols, threatening to undermine the

Internet's open and interconnected character, discourage broadband use, and crippling the

innovation the Internet has made possible.
