Comcast: We Won't Terminate Your Account Under Six Strikes; We'll Just Block Every Single Website | Techdirt

Comcast: We Won't Terminate Your Account Under Six Strikes; We'll Just Block Every Single Website | Techdirt | Telecom Recon | Scoop.it

The various ways in which the big ISPs would implement their version of the "six strikes" Copyright Alert System had mostly been leaked over the past few months, but there had been nothing coming out of Comcast. AT&T planned to block "frequently visited websites" after the fourth strike. Verizon planned to throttle speeds so low that it would drive users crazy.

 

It looks like Comcast is doing something similar to Time Warner, which means that after four accusations (not convictions, not proof of guilt, just accusations), anyone using the account of someone who hits that strike will have all of their browsing hijacked and sent to a landing page that they cannot get around. Oddly, for reasons that don't make much sense, the page that TorrentFreak links to on Comcast's site disappeared. If I go to it, I get a 404 not found. But if I do a search on the keyword "mitigation," it still shows up in the index. Then I click, and the page is still gone. Either way, while it's technically true that they're not "cutting off" people, they are clearly cutting them off from the wider web.

This is amazing that you may   have comcast tracking  what your doing if they don't like it or feel you should not be doing it. Privacy with what you do with your data connection mayu be going out the window.
