Sandvine's technology aiding Comcast BitTorrent filesharing blocking

Last month, there were reports that Comcast is sending forged RST (reset) packets for BitTorrent file sharing, hence hindering users who use this protocol.

Now, the local newspaper, The Record, has an article about how a local company, Sandvine, supplied Comcast with the technology to do what it is doing.

Sandvine's sales and stock price have been doing well of late.

The article mentions that Canadian ISPs, including Rogers and Sympatico, throttle peer-to-peer traffic in peak hours.
