PacketController Net Neutrality QoS


This white paper describes PacketController’s net neutrality methodology. Through PacketController's automatic TCP rate-limiting technology, it does not matter what the traffic is, or if it's encrypted, as the algorithms at this level fundamentally work per subscriber.
