Does your internet provider throttle traffic to and from legitimate sites because of favoritism ? Are they trying to steer you to specific sites by slowing down connections to and from those other sites ?

Internet providers are supposed to be neutral. But of course how does someone find out when they aren’t ? They certainly wont admit to doing it and no technology exists to analyze their transfers. Right ?

Well, researcher Dan Kaminsky has been working on a program called N00ter to do this.

Basically it times transfers to and from sites using different methods and compares the resulting information to find throttling.

Additional information on this new program can be found on Forbes.
