AT&T denies bandwidth throttling scenario

AT&T is denying that it throttles Internet bandwidth following a study by online video distributor Vuze that suggested several of the largest U.S. broadband service providers were doing exactly that by issuing false reset commands. In comments filed with the Federal Communications Commission, AT&T said that Vuze's study did not take into consideration network conditions that could cause resets, and also that Vuze itself noted that the study did not definitely prove intentional throttling by the service providers implicated.

How do you feel about the Vuze study? Did it add further valuable information to the traffic-shaping and Net neutrality debates, or did its just add another degree of confusion?
