The FCC rules against Comcast, due to the fact that the FCC believes they were at fault when they interered with their subscribers.

They did so by either slowing or blocking user access to P2P file-sharing networks such as BitTorrent.

The FCC did not issue any fines towards Comcast, but has ordered them to stop these “discriminatory management practices by the end of the year.”

Comcast has issued a response saying their ruling creates “significant due process concerns and a variety of substantive legal questions.”
