I don't know, not knowing what they look for. One obvious way would be to look at who owns the IP. If it's from a domestic ISP, it's probably regarded as kosher. If it's from a hoster such as Digiweb or Blacknight, it's probably regarded as terefah.
In either case, they could be wrong, but it's probably a reasonable starting point. As the OP said though, many domestic conenctions won't have fast enough uploads to be reasonably used for streaming.
