The way I understand it, it's not an "application" that Comcast is messing with, it's an entire protocol, or set of protocols that fall under the heading of Peer-to-Peer.<br><br>It's not just the torrent share that's Comcast's target, P2P is suffering all around. Used to be that iChat/IM direct file transfers were much faster than they are now. Last few times I've used it, it would start out fast—generally 500 KB/s or better—then quickly slow down, to well under 100 KB/s, often down to less than 50 KB/s.<br><br>"This is not here."
