By Digital News Asia April 12, 2016
- Can volunteer for National Internet Measurement Infrastructure project
- Volunteers get Whitebox device, get to measure actual ISP performance
BROADBAND measurement performance company SamKnows said it has been awarded a contract by industry regulator the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to measure consumer Internet performance.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Singapore is now one of 40 countries currently using the SamKnows measurement platform, the company said in a statement.
SamKnows said it provides consumers with the opportunity to measure and improve the quality of their Internet experience.
By taking part in the National Internet Measurement Infrastructure (NIMI) project, Singaporeans can join thousands of other consumers in putting their ISPs (Internet service providers) to the test and ensuring they are getting the quality of experience that they are expecting.
As part of a drive to expand the project, SamKnows is now offering free hardware devices called ‘Whiteboxes’ to new volunteers, allowing users to measure speeds of up to 1Gbps.
Volunteers can also download SamKnows, a free app that gives customers access to real-time accurate data and analytics via the SamKnows dashboard (pic above).
Interested participants can apply for a free Whitebox at https://www.samknows.com.sg/.
