    wait wait, so they're actually promoting this by saying that movies will download twice as fast?!?! VERIZON FTW!!! now see, if my isp could do that, that'd be freaking sweet.. as my isp (cablevision systems) is the largest fiber network in the nation!!! heh, most of the high speed peers i get are from my isp lol.

    Hold on a minute. Localizing file sharing would allow for better tracking IMO.

    this is a win win situation for torrents & isps.. but hollywood will take verizon to court as the next isp they target if verizon promotes this.

    I like to know who actually beta tested this. They were very tight lipped about it. I read no leaks (post, articles, etc) about this at all until now. Maybe I missed it...

    probably was an internal verizon affair.
