Our new report entitled Do data caps punish the wrong users? A bandwidth usage reality check is finally out. It’s been a long time coming, in part because of more complex data analysis than what we originally expected. This is a data driven report in which we analyse real time DSL network usage statistics from a partner ISP on a user by user basis to try and identify which users are the most disruptive, how they can be identified and if commonly used methods of traffic flow management (and data caps in particular) are fair and effective.
This is a must read for:
- Regulators and policy makers looking at assessing traffic management measures implemented by ISPs,
- ISPs considering various means to alleviate congestion in their networks
- Consumer protection associations looking to understand the price impacts of data caps
