Bad news for the Com­cast users who seed tor­rents. Tor­rent­F­reak reports that Com­cast has start­ed throt­tling Bit­Tor­rent traf­fic using an appli­ca­tion from Sand­vine. Sand­vine breaks every (seed) con­nec­tion with new peers after a few sec­onds if it’s not a Com­cast user. This makes it vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble to seed a file, espe­cial­ly in small swarms with­out any Com­cast users. Some users report that they can still con­nect to a few peers, but most of the Com­cast cus­tomers see a sig­nif­i­cant drop in their upload speed.

To find out the solu­tion of this prob­lem, head over to Tor­rent­F­reak and read the full arti­cle.
