@mitsukarenai: your experiment is extremely helpful, thank you.
However, there are two possible conclusions:
* throttling from Free
* overloading of a tube between Free's network and Youtube (who knows, maybe every Free subscriber watches videos just before midnight ;-) )
It would be worth testing the bandwidth of a host that is "close" to Youtube (in term of hops), i.e. comparing bandwidthes from routes that are sensibly the same, but lead to different hosts.
All streaming websites are extremely slowed down before midnight. Can't even see a 480p version without waiting for buffering. 720p or 1080p are impossible to see. Very strange as I can download up to 2 mo/s with my connexion on any server.

RespectMyNet.eu is an online platform enabling citizens to report net neutrality violations. Everyone is invited to report blocking or throttling of their Internet access or unfair discrimination between online services. This will help to shed light on those harmful practices and provide evidence to the telecom regulators to do their duty to defend the open and innovative Internet in Europe.
