Throttling of users for questionable Internet Traffic

While I certainly hope this doesn't apply to anyone on this forum, or will be attempted by anyone be aware that Verizon will be throttling pirates starting this month. The equipment is already in place and this will mean slower network performance for all, even if you are not throttled. The gear used to monitor traffic does cause latency and definitely reduces the "Snap" you'll feel. I see it all the time at places with web filtering and bandwidth management for pesky users.

So, say Thank You! 🙂 I'll be having fun cooking equipment. Also, the ToS already has arrangements for dealing with piracy requests so this extra step is not even required. I would also be aware of a lot of false positives, which is common for any "systematic" monitoring of web traffic.
