Comcast to stop throttling BitTorrent

Comcast has changed its method of throttling bandwitch from targeting apps to just targeting high network traffic. This new “protocol-agnostic” will temporarily throttle heavy users if their area of the network is experiencing heavy traffic. “customers’ accounts must exceed a certain percentage of their upstream or downstream (both currently set at 70%) bandwidth for longer than a certain period of time, currently set at fifteen minutes.”

Here’s more information on the change as well as their FAQ.
