Comcast services angers Vonage customers

In an effort to promote their own VoIP service, Comcast began blocking Vonage packets from their networks days before the VoIP launch. Like all of the cable providers that are providing VoIP, Comcast’s service is slightly more expensive than Vonage, which leads many to believe that this is “forcing of consumer use” to one particular product. All of these complaints are in turn run from VonageForums, a independently run consumer base for Vonage.
Now if this is the case… isn’t this illegal? I’m pretty sure that you can’t hold the market hostage to your own product that you’re trying to market. There is this thing called antitrust suits that are launched against such actions similar to the one that AMD is currently holding against Intel.
