Clearwire ISP seems to throttle BitTorrent traffic:


"It appears to me that Clearwire, which is my WISP, is throttling P2P traffic. ... the other day I installed a Torrent client to get a (legitimate) file that was only available that way and it downloaded exceedingly slow."


"My ISP (clearwire) drops my connection if they detect torrent traffic on my wire."

Sounds like a disaster to me!:


"They block all ports! Except the basic email and web ports, they block the rest. ... Even though the backhaul from the wireless site to the pop at "high speeds" thier connection to the Inet is usualy only 1.5 Mbps(1 T1) or even two or three. When you have 50-200 customers on a link, trying to share that little bandwidth, you'd be lucky to get the 64k I see referred to on this sites posts."..."They block all ports! menaing you can do little to nothing except surf the overly commercialized Inet and send & read emails."

And they're getting competitor's VoIP as well!:


"Advanced IP Pipeline reports today that wireless broadband provider Clearwire Corp. is apparently blocking outside VoIP providers from its network."

For what it's worth, most of these articles are over 6 months old...but I'd expect things to not be much better now.
