Empirical evidence of network neutrality - The incentives for discrimination
On cooperative settlement between content, transit, and eyeball internet service providers
A more detailed and realistic network model is used with three classes of ISPs: content, transit, and eyeball to derive closed-form Shapley values for more structured ISP topologies and develop a dynamic programming procedure to compute the Shapley value under more diverse Internet topologies.

Data diet pills: in-network video quality control system for traffic usage reduction
It is argued here that network operators should introduce a traffic pacer for providing traffic reduction services as an optional plan for subscribers, and NetPacer, an in-network traffic pacing system for reducing traffic usage by degrading the video quality.
“This is not how we imagined it”: Technological affordances, economic drivers, and the Internet architecture imaginary
This work uses a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to show how the Internet architecture’s affordance structure got reconfigured, and how this facilitated the prioritization of corporate interests over the interests of end users.
