Arbor Issues Middle East Internet Scorecard

Arbor Networks published an analysis of Internet traffic volumes for several Middle Eastern nations last week. Arbor uses real-time data from the 110 Internet providers around the world to identify possible ongoing Internet traffic manipulation in Middle East countries with active protest movements. In a blog posting, Arbor's Craig Labovitz observes that the sudden drop in traffic in some countries with on-going protests is more likely caused by regime filtering rather than broken circuits.
