The article focuses on the impact of the developments in peer-to-peer (P2P) technology on broadband communications. In P2P arrangements, portions of each participant's hard drive hold pieces of a song or a video which are automatically removed in the background at any time. Eighty percent of bandwidth is used by 20 percent of users, most of which are P2P traffickers. A policy server can individually limit the P2P packets or aggregately limit all P2P bits from all P2P transmitters.
