Submission + - AT&T: We Don't Reset P2P Connections 1

From the article: "But the Vuze report doesn't take into consideration other network conditions that can reset P2P connections, according to AT&T. AT&T vice president of Internet and network systems research Charles Kalmanek, in a letter addressed to Vuze CEO Gilles BianRosa, said that peer-to-peer resets can arise from numerous local network events, including outages, attacks, reconfigurations or overall trends in Internet usage."
