MEO and US slowed internet service to eliminate piracy

Allegedly MEO and NOS slowed down consumer internet service this weekend. All this to try (unsuccessfully) to eliminate piracy of football games. Namely Sporting / Benfica.

According to the information, MEO and NOS have decided to cut the internet speed on certain websites such as Twitter and Twitch in order to avoid streams of this Sunday's classic.

MEO and US slowed internet service to eliminate piracy

Who reported it was Open until dawn, indicating that guarantees not to be the only one unable to see a video that is on the twitter platform. Since traffic shaping affected the website itself, it was not just 'naughty' videos that couldn't be viewed but all of them.

MEO and US accused of traffic shaping to prevent piracy

In summary, This has happened to all customers with these carriers. That is, whether or not they are watching piracy stream, all customers have slow internet access on certain websites.

But if you think this is more of a conspiracy, think again. According to the article's comments, many MEO users felt this slowness. At least this weekend.

I could talk a lot about this possible lack of character. However, it is early to draw conclusions. We have already contacted operators to confirm or deny this. We want to get to the bottom of the matter. If this is true, it will even have to be questioned what the operators' duties are in relation to the services they provide.

In short, we will be waiting for the contact of the operators. Until then, let's raise the issue with national operators. If true, it's time to claim a discount on the invoice. From what I saw, you don't pay to have a limited speed on certain websites.
