After this article was published, Apple told Dave Choffnes [the developer of the app] that his iPhone app, designed to detect net neutrality violations, will be allowed in the iTunes App Store. According to Choffnes, Apple contacted him and explained that the company has to deal with many apps that don’t do the things they claim to do. Apple asked Choffnes to provide a technical description of how his app is able to detect if wireless telecom providers throttle certain types of data, and 18 hours after he did, the app was approved.

Cool.. now go and download this app and see if your ISP is throttling your Netflix or YouTube (among others) since they insist they are not doing so.
