Major U.S. ISP’s Accused of Deliberately Slowing Traffic

from yahoo.com: Five major internet service providers in the US and one in Europe have
been accused of abusing their market share to interfere with the flow of
the internet for end users.
The accusations come from Level 3, a
communications company that helps connect large-scale ISPs like Comcast
or AT&T to the rest of the internet. According to the company, these
six unnamed ISPs are deliberately degrading the quality of internet
services using the Level 3 network, in an attempt to get Level 3 to pay
them a fee for additional traffic caused by services like Netflix, a
process known as paid peering.
