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

betaville writes: AT&T filed comments with the FCC denying it throttles back peer-to-peer traffic using false "reset" commands — which Comcast has admitted it does — after a test by P2P video distributor Vuze suggested that all major ISPs do so, MultiChannel News reports ( http://www.multichannel.com/article/CA6555207.html?desc=topstory ).

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."
