More baloney by the cell companies...

... in this case, AT&T. I can understand the reasons why it would be bad to use P2P or stream on *any* network. What network admin wants to hear complaints all the time due to lack of bandwidth? But to spend billions of dollars on a 3G (and 4G to come) buildout so that users can access the internet in an "intermittent and bursty" manner? Ridiculous.

This is "CYA" for AT&T for when the lawsuits start - as the first person gets booted off AT&T's service for constantly using their Slingbox on their HSDPA connection.

By the way - what grown man uses the word "bursty"? Shocked
