The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission will recommend that
the nation's largest cable company be punished for violating agency
principles that guarantee customers open access to the Internet.

The potentially precedent-setting move stems from a complaint against
Comcast Corp. that the company had blocked Internet traffic among users of
a certain type of software that allowed them to exchange large amounts of
data.

Martin told The Associated Press late Thursday that "the commission has
adopted a set of principles that protects consumers' access to the
Internet." He said the commission "found that Comcast's actions in this
instance violated our principles."
