NeutMon: Studying neutrality in European mobile networks

Net neutrality is the principle that all data on the Internet should be treated in the same way, without discrimination by content, application, or service. Research about net neutrality mostly focused on the wired Internet, and little effort has been devoted to wireless scenarios. However, mobile devices are now the main access medium to the Internet for a large fraction of users and this trend is expected to continue in the next years. In this paper, we study net neutrality in a European mobile broadband scenario using NeutMon, a tool specifically designed for being executed in the MONROE testbed. MONROE's nodes are connected to 13 mobile broadband providers spread in four European countries. Preliminary results show that in this set of operators differentiation is enforced, in terms of bandwidth, for a commonly used peer-to-peer application, in contrast with recent EU regulations.
