Submission + - Israeli ISPs caught interfering P2P traffic (ynetnews.com)

Fuzzzy writes: For a long time, many people have suspected that Israeli ISPs are blocking or delaying P2P traffic. However, no hard evidence was provided, and the ISPs denied any interference. Today Ynetnews published a comprehensive research which for the first time proves those suspicions. Using Glasnost and switzerland, evidences for deliberate delays and DPI were found. From TFA:

Since 2007 Ynet has received complaints according to which Israeli ISPs block P2P traffic. Those were brought to the media and were dismissed by the ISPs.
Our findings were that there is direct and deliberate interference in P2P traffic by at least two out of the three major ISPs and that this interference exists by both P2P caching and P2P blocking.
