Comcast Accused of Congestion By Choice

An anonymous reader writes “A kind soul known as Backdoor Santa has posted graphs purportedly showing traffic through TATA, one of Comcast’s transit providers. The graphs of throughput for a day and month, respectively, show that Comcast chooses to run congested links rather than buy more capacity. Keeping their links full may ensure that content providers must pay to colocate within Comcast’s network. The graphs also show a traffic ratio far from 1:1, which has implications for the validity of its arguments with Level (3) last month.”
