The continuous evolution of Internet and Internet applications increases the demands on access networks. Understanding user behavior and Internet usage patterns is fundamental in developing future access networks that meet technical as well as end user needs, and from a societal point of view it is equally important to correctly recognize and understand user behavior. In this paper, the authors present measurements from the Acreo National Testbed where they have access to traffic measurements from real end users. They have developed a unified methodology combining traffic measurements with web questionnaires and diaries to compare the results from different methods as well as investigate user behavior.
