Comcast Added to Monument’s Bandwidth Allocation Campaign

July 11, 2017

Comcast is the latest defendant to be hit by Preferential Networks IP, LLC’s (PNI’s) campaign asserting a bandwidth allocation patent (8,577,994). As in its cases against AT&T (AT&T Mobility, Cricket Wireless, New Cingular Wireless Services) and the Softbank Group (Boost Mobile, Sprint Spectrum, Virgin Mobile), Preferential (an affiliate of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC) accuses Comcast (2:17-cv-00530) of infringement through provision of “network throttling” mechanisms (e.g. restricting delivery of data to a user based on prior usage) within its networks.
