Comcast to face net neutrality sanctions

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

Reports out of Washington D.C., suggest that the FCC’s Martin will recommend a sanction against Comcast for violating its net neutrality principles, but it is not clear (since those principles were not an “order” in a legal sense) whether the decision will have any teeth. Comcast, furthermore, has already changed the way it manages traffic, focusing on users and not applications. The move by the FCC is thus popular with consumer advocates and meaningless, but it may show that the FCC will come down harder on deep packet inspection (DPI)  for gleaning behavioral data from ISP streams.
