Default Announcement: PlusNet to Launch 'Broadband Plus'

do you throttle it and inflict a performance penalty on something
entirely innocent in terms of potential copyright infringement?

Not an easy question to answer I'll warrant, but one that should be asked.


I think the answer (in a plusnet.* posting) was "if in doubt, throttle it"
which is understandable if it cannot be positively matched to be one of the
"welcome" types of traffic... no need to take any notice of what it is, or
worry about it being encrypted but innocent... it could open the way for a
business user to pay for a residential account rather than business account
(which will remain untouched by any traffic shaping), and accept the slight
speed penalty for such traffic. Peter M.
