Sprint Might Be Throttling Skype, Say Researchers

Friday November 9, 2018. 07:27 PM , from TheMacObserver
An ongoing study by Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts claims that Sprint is throttling Skype without telling customers.
Choffnes and his team analyzed more than 719,417 tests conducted by 100,000 users across 135 countries, and discovered that wireless carriers routinely throttle streaming video applications. While carriers often claim this kind of throttling only occurs in response to network congestion, evidence suggests the practice is often tied to efforts to upsell users to pricier plans.
We need net neutrality more than ever.
