NEWS - Network Early Warning System v2.0.1

Released on 2010-07-08, 13 years ago.
Requires Vuze or higher.
Allows your Vuze client to monitor the Internet (and your ISP).
Reliably finds problems in the network and raises alerts about them, which (among other things) allows users to check up on their ISPs to make sure they are getting the service they pay for.
NEWS (Network Early Warning System) works by passively monitoring BT performance and checking for changes that might indicate problems with the network. Because a network problem can be anywhere, including the local network, NEWS uses corroboration from multiple users running in the same area (e.g., ISP or country). If enough people see the same problem in the same area, an alarm is raised.
