Hi Paul:

The article you mention is similar to one at the BBC:

The source cited in both articles is the same: Sandvine.
These guys are not unbiased.   They make bandwidth-limiting devices.

They proffer their boxes to cable/dsl operators that are trying to
avoid spending money on needed infrastructure improvements.
(Why provide good service, when you can take the same money and try to buy Disney...)
