Users’ packets were routed through a billing gateway, which had two functions. First, it measured certain aspects of user behavior, which were recorded in a database. Second, it could offer various qualities of service by selectively degrading how the packets were handled. For example, even though the actual ISDN bandwidth was always 128 kilobits a second, the billing gateway could buffer packets so that actual throughput was any desired speed less than this. The experiments were limited to six speeds: 8, 16, 32, 64, 96, and 128 kilobits a second.
