Earthlink can block VoIP too

Remember ClearWire, and how upset everyone got that they were blocking VoIP traffic. (Vonage suffered as a result, which is a shame!) but many other ISPs are planning to, or can do exactly the same. David Farber’s Interesting People mailing list has a thread going on Earthlink’s cable “terms of service” which permits exactly that. I don’t think Earthlink has enforced this, but still, don’t be surprised if it ever happens. Masnick reminds those who wish to block VoIP, voice is really data. I add, data which actually brings a few pennies home. (via Broadband Reports)
