Submission + - Net Neutrality: The Comcast/Netflix mess one method of teaching the FCC a lesson (hackaday.com)

szczys writes: Rick Osgood did a really good job of explaining the finer points of throttling accusations between Comcast and Netflix. It's not hard to understand, but this actually gives details for tech savvy readers instead of the lowest common denominator.

The article closes by talking about a script written by Kyledrake. It detects FCC IP addresses and throttles them down to 28.8kbps speeds. Hi idea is that if enough websites were doing this it would send a message of throttling==bad to the people making the laws about net neutrality.
