Throttling in violation of net neutrality,

Let me start by saying I'm in no way a "tinfoil hat" type, but in "the real world" a violation of "net neutrality" seems almost laughable.

ISP throttling is a known fact.

"Am I sure"?
Definitely, in my case.
I had both the cable service and the DSL for a few days/week and know for a fact it wasn't on the DirecTV end.


I dont know if they are throttling per se, but not giving a decent upload speed does that automatically. I also know that they know how to recognize certain packet types and on occasion do slow those packets to perserve quality of service for other consumers. But i do think its not fair to sell 12 meg service if they arent prepared to back it up. Just my opinion.

My setup: HR 44, HR34, 2x HR 24, 2x HR 23-700, 4x C31's, Nomad...

"And they'll say" we only list it as "up to" speeds.
I got so pissed at my cable service for the same reason. "Sure I have 3 Mb/s" but only at 2 AM! :eek2:
At this time, they had way over sold the service and there were over 500 modems/customers on one node.
A year or two after I dumped them, they finally ran some more fiber and split the node.

I remember when our local cable co sold a minimum speed and it could burst 20x faster if the node wasn't busy.
