Providing service transparency will have a huge impact on users privacy, which might significantly change the balance of power between Internet companies and end-users. In addition, transparency is also essential for regulation authorities, such as ARCEP (the French communication regulation authority),  to improve their view of network characteristics and ensure the respect of citizens rights.
