Wehe – ISP Traffic Speed Check

Wehe is a tool to determine if your ISP is deliberately slowing down some kinds of traffic. It works by sending pre-recorded chunks of traffic to Wehe’s servers. For example, one can send a recording of traffic when playing a YouTube video. Wehe then sends the same amount of random data to the same server. Lastly, it compares the transfer speeds of the pre-recorded traffic and the random traffic to see if your ISP slowed the recorded traffic down. Wehe comes with pre-recorded data from Amazon Video, NBC Sports, Netflix, Skype, Spotify, Vimeo, and YouTube. Future versions will allow users to record their own custom test data to sites of their choice. The stats section of Wehe’s website gives anonymous summary information, showing which networks slow or block traffic to the popular sites they test. Source code for Wehe is also available on GitHub under the Community Research and Academic Programming License. Academic papers based on data collected by Wehe are listed in the “Technical details” and “Case Studies” sections of their site. Wehe is available for Android and iOS devices.
