The world’s top bittorrent manipulators


These charts show the Internet service providers (ISPs) who are the heaviest users of DPI to throttle or block BitTorrent. For the years 2009, 2010, 2011, and the first quarter of 2012, we show the 10 or 11 ISPs who had the highest percentage of tests that yielded a positive result; that is, a result indicating that DPI was used to throttle or block BitTorrent. If an ISP’s result on the chart is 93%, for example, it means that 93 percent of the tests their users conducted using Glasnost produced a result that shows that the BitTorrent application was singled out and manipulated by the ISP using deep packet inspection technology. The chart shows the two-letter country code and the name of the network operator.
