Six Strikes Rule and Cell Carriers


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if cell carriers will be implementing this new six strikes rule that most of the country's largest internet service providers have signed on to implement this week? I think that it's absolute crap that isp's get to monitor our usage. I also heard people say that if you use a vpn you can bypass their efforts as well as avoiding bittorrents.


p.s. sorry if their is already a thread on this topc. was not aware..forgive me :(

I thought most cell carriers like sprint already have anti-torrenting policies within the contract; Including the methods to enable such abuse like tethering.



I doubt there will be any change. Essentially all ISP's already send out notices and penalty's for copyright holders, I really don't see how this will be any different..


What I don't get is how these copyright holders basically share their own content via bit torrent to track those who share and download it, That should be considered as a form of entrapment; But that didn't stop cnet from sharing P2P applications while partner company CBS sued the users..

ISPs wont be monitoring usage. The copyright trolls will be watching torrents just as they always have and forwarding the notices on to the ISPs to take corrective action towards you.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
