µTorrent has partnered with Measurement Lab (M-Lab), to provide internet testing tools for our users.
Measurement Lab (M-Lab) is an open, distributed server platform for researchers to deploy Internet measurement tools. The goal of M-Lab is to advance network research and empower the public with useful information about their broadband connections. By enhancing Internet transparency, M-Lab helps sustain a healthy, innovative Internet.
No personally identifiable information is shared by using the Measurement Lab testing tools in µTorrent. The data collected in the process of testing is, however, intended to be made open and available for researchers in accordance with the policies of Measurement Lab. Details of the data created by the tests is available here. Network Diagnostic Tool is the first to be made available through the client.
