The author comments on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) decision regarding the complaint against Comcast Corp.'s network management practices. He points out that Comcast was nailed down for discriminating against high-volume peer-to-peer traffic and made an error by changing its accounts several times. He suggests that Comcast will have to use network management practices that block all high-volume users and not just peer-to-peer users.
