Is Comcast Lying About BitTorrent Throttling? – Allegations denied but user experiences say otherwise

Comcast was recently caught on message forums engaging in BitTorrent throttling through the Sandvine application. But Comcast flat out denies the allegations.

Comcast spokesman Charlie Douglas reportedly responded:

“The company doesn’t actively look at the applications or content that its customers download over the network. But Comcast does reserve the right to cut off service to customers who abuse the network by using too much bandwidth.”

But the folks over at TorrentFreak who have stayed on top of the issue say that there s no truth to Comcast s denial. After all, how does Comcast determine how much bandwidth is “too much”?
