Which internet providers are implementing the "six strike" policy?
landon 40 weeks ago
Is there a way to find out if your ISP is doing this? I'm not too happy at the thought of the ISP I pay for doing what the MPAA and RIAA demands, and my level of confidence that the "six strikes" policy will be fair and accurate is pretty low based on the competence I've seen from my ISP. The policy, in case you haven't heard of it, is a process of throttling your internet connection based on alleged copyright infringement by anyone using your network. Key word = alleged.
