AT&T has written a public letter to the FCC stating that it expressly forbids the use of peer-to-peer applications on its mobile phones and laptop cards. It said that its network is built to enable short bursts of high-speed traffic for activities such as sending email or browsing the web, not for sustained high-bandwidth activities such as downloading media content. It says that the P2P clause is explicitly spelled out in its terms of service as forbidden, and told the FCC it will cancel the contract of anyone found to be in violation of those terms.

THATS WHY YOU GO WITH SPRINTS
AT&T the Bandwith Nazi
🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
More baloney by the cell companies...
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"? 😳
Yet, despite the suppossed "technical" reason, they still are descriminating against a paticular application of they network. This arguement will fall flat when it's proven that there are other "sanctioned" apps that have a similar usage pattern.
So please tell me
AT&T "Your world, delivered....eventually"
