Deep Packet Inspection Concerns

There are numerous reasons for service providers to engage in deep packet inspection -- the practice of analyzing packets and understanding what type of data is contained therein. One simple reason to do this is to prioritize certain types of traffic that should be of higher priority.

Be that as it may, many are concerned about this practice and furthermore are not fond of having their service providers know everything they do online.

This argument can't easily be separated from that of net neutrality and specifically in a  recent case where Comcast was found to be slowing BitTorrent traffic.
