Verizon Communications intends to work with peer-to-peer file sharers by helping those who share files legally to do it at greater speeds -- company researchers say working with this group can increase download speed 60%, on average. "This test signifies a turning point in the history of peer-to-peer technology and ISPs," said Robert Levitan, chief executive officer of file-sharing company Pando Networks. "It will definitely show ISPs that the problem is not peer-to-peer technology, the problem is how you deploy it. It is possible to deploy P2P to their advantage."
