While KC is obviously best person to answer, my understanding is that with the disapearence of ATT inside of SBC and the disappearance of MCIUUNET inside of Verizon all their traffic that CAIDA used to get was pulled. CAIDA gets it no longer because now it is proprietary. IMO a bad situation

The pendelum swings back and forth. At the moment, companies have been getting bashed when they make an effort to make data available and then researchers spend their efforts to de-anonymize the data.

Companies still spend a lot of money and hire research companies to analyze the data privately; its just not worth the hassle of releasing
it publically or giving it to academics for free.
