    ISP Net Neutrality Test

    Following the recent controversy regarding certain ISPs and their alleged violation of "network neutrality", the EFF have launched "Switzerland", a tool for you to check out your ISP with

    A link to their announcement is here:

    The download site is here:

    https://sourceforge.net/project/show...ease_id=617038

    I am afraid that it is still in alpha, and it was only released on Friday but have fun anyway

    Don't forget: if you find any bugs or have any suggestions; let the EFF guys know.

    EFF's Switzerland Unmasks ISP Meddling

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation is releasing a tool called Switzerland to help users determine if their ISPs are messing with P2P traffic...

    Blog: EFF Helps Spot ISP Spies - PC World

    Part of the EFF's Test Your ISP project, Switzerland can detect anti-P2P tools like Sandvine and Audible Magic, and is able to keep copies of any modified data that your ISP injects into your file transfer. This is significant as anti-P2P software typically modifies data being transferred which then tricks your computer into terminating the connection.

    The EFF's Switzerland is a successor to pcapdiff and, according to the EFF, automates a lot of the procedures that pcapdiff required users to do manually. Switzerland is currently recommended for operation by advanced users, but the EFF anticipates that as an open source tool, Switzerland will develop into a consumer ready application in the future.
    There's more info on Switzerland and Test Your ISP at the official EFF website.
