Re: US slaps fine on company blocking VoIP

So who's going to be the IP cop that decided which actions are
anti-competitive and which actions are 'customer care'?

How many service providers oversubscribe their internet feed. Just because
the advertisement says 384k upstream and 2Mbps downstream doesn't mean
this is a guaranteed rate available 24x7 to any destination. In most cases
there is some bandwidth management box somewhere that provides a fair
share of bandwidth to all of the ISPs customers. I am really curious at
which point shaping of traffic is viewed as anti-competitive...
