US House of Representatives can now listen to Spotify after previous ban prevented use

Spotify streaming no longer blocked in US House of Representatives

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 13, 2013 3:43 pm

The House of Representatives now have access to the music streaming service Spotify. Previously, Spotify had seen itself banned in the House due to an IT rule that prevents peer-to-peer technology when operating on the House's secure network.

To help protect House data, our IT policy generally prohibits the use of peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies while operating within the secure network. While Spotify is currently not authorized, the CAO has and will continue to work with outside vendors to enable the popular services that improve member communication capabilities.

 

Hopefully some Spotify music will calm the nerves and reduce the fighting between members of the House. May I recommend Why can't we be friends by War?
