In the fight against copyrights infringment the line gets slower

Cox, the third largest ISP in the U.S, adopted a new way to discourage BiTorrent users, slowing the Internet speed when the line is (in their opinion) congested.
This will be achieved using a brand new throttling scheme, whose details are unknown.
Any practice that comes between users and the Internet puts at stake the network neutrality.
Restrictions won´t help the ISP for long.
As long as the customers will decide for another competitor with more available bandwidth...
