We address a conjecture introduced by Massouli´e (2007), concerning the large deviations of the stationary measure of bandwidth-sharing networks functioning under the Proportional fair allocation. For Markovian networks, we prove that Proportional fair and an associated reversible allocation are geometrically ergodic and have the same large deviations characteristics using Lyapunov functions and martingale arguments. For monotone networks, we give a more direct proof of the same result relying on stochastic comparisons that hold for general service requirement distribution. These results comfort the intuition that Proportional fairness is ´close´ to allocations of service being insensitive to the service time requirement.
