Georgia Tech researchers devising tools to give end users visibility into government censorship, service provider bandwidth throttling, equipment issues

... at least $1 million to Georgia Tech researchers working on tools that will immediately reveal when governments are trying to shut down or censor use of the Internet.

The timing of the award announcement is coincidental – the grant process was well underway before the anti-government revolutions recently grabbed international attention – but the aim of the research would address exactly some of the issues...
Haza!

Should be useful when ISPs throttle people for using the bandwidth they pay for.
