There's more info on Switzerland and Test Your ISP at the official EFF website.
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.
