Information is power.
The Measuring Broadband Mongolia campaign is a unique project that aims to gather and report on statistically valid broadband performance data. The long-term goal is to build an accurate picture of real time broadband performance that can be used to influence, educate, and improve broadband provision across Mongolia.
Although the project focuses on measuring speed, it also looks, amongst other factors, at latency and packet loss, which play a vital role in determining the quality of a consumer's broadband performance. The suite of tests developed aims to measure all key aspects of a consumer's network connection and give a holistic and accurate representation of ISP performance.
The data collected is used by everyone, from academic institutions to the government, to help shape policy and to better understand the challenges in rolling out broadband access to everyone who needs it. The program is always looking for more people to join up; it would not exist without the amazingly committed volunteers who have already signed up to test their broadband.
