        A Large-Scale Analysis of Deployed Traffic Differentiation Practices

        Net neutrality has been the subject of considerable public debate over
        the past decade. Despite the potential impact on content providers
        and users, there is currently a lack of tools or data for stakeholders to
        independently audit the net neutrality policies of network providers.
        In this work, we address this issue by conducting a one-year study of
        content-based traffic differentiation policies deployed in operational
        networks, using results from 1,045,413 crowdsourced measurements
        conducted by 126,249 users across 2,735 ISPs in 183 countries/regions. We develop and evaluate a methodology that combines
        individual per-device measurements to form high-confidence,
        statistically significant inferences of differentiation practices,
        including fixed-rate bandwidth limits (i.e., throttling) and delayed
        throttling practices. Using this approach, we identify differentiation
        in both cellular and WiFi networks, comprising 30 ISPs in 7 countries.
        We also investigate the impact of throttling practices on video
        streaming resolution for several popular video streaming providers.

        Yesterday, February 23, a US Federal judge in California ruled that California’s Net Neutrality law (adopted September 2018, but challenged) is valid and that the provisions may be enforced.
