I know that this question is a bit ridiculous in this community.  Of course bufferbloat is a real problem.  However, it would be nice to formally address the question and I think this community is the right place to do so.

Does anybody have a measurement study?  I have some stuff from the FCC Measuring Broadband in America studies, but, that doesn't address bufferbloat directly.

Let me repeat for clarity.  I don't need to be convinced.  I need evidence that I can use to convince my committee.
