The ISP March Toward Packet Preferencing Continues

Mark Evans, a reporter with the National Post, reports on his blog that Clearwire has established a terms of use that effectively excludes services such as Vonage and BitTorrent.

The terms say: "You may not use the Service or take any action that will result in excessive consumption or utilization of Clearwires system or network resources, or which may weaken network performance, or which adversely affects the performance of the Services for other Clearwire customers, all as determined in Clearwires sole discretion".
As more and more of the stories emerge, the need for ISP accountability on the network side becomes ever greater.
