Submission + - Australian Telco Telstra To Clamp Down On Peer-To-Peer (theage.com.au)

beaverdownunder writes: Telstra is planning to begin throttling P2P traffic during 'peak periods' as soon as later this week in an effort to improve the performance of its network for casual web-browsers.

Telstra executive director Michael Lawrey has previously stated (in 2011) that he wished the small number of users who used the vast majority of Telstra's available bandwidth were somebody else's customers, and that Telstra would consider taking action against those deemed to be violating Telstra's 'fair-use' policies (although presumably still operating within their contract's data transfer limits.)
