Is Comcast Squeezing Skype?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is investigating Comcast over allegations that its network management practices are degrading the quality of third-party VoIP providers (such as Skype or Vonage) while leaving Comcast’s own voice service untouched.

This is the scenario that advocates of “network neutrality” have warned about.

For its part, a Comcast spokesperson is quoted as saying that the company is complying with FCC regulations.
