The FCC is asking the nation’s broadband and smartphone users to use their broadband testing tools to help the feds and consumers know what speeds are actually available, not just promised by the nations’ telecoms.
I'm all for this test! I know when I lived in Big Lake, (Alaska) I was told we get 8MB downloads speeds, and I never got over 5 down when I ran a test.
I also think that you can't use a test your ISP supplies, because it might be controlled. ;)
More on this later!
