That is categorically untrue, however nice a soundbite it may be. If you
or anyone else truly believes we are throttling someone then I encourage
you to file a formal complaint with the FCC. According to their Open
Internet rules that we are bound to through at least 2018 (IIRC) we may
not discriminate on traffic in that way, so there is a clear rule and a
clear process for complaints.
