European campaign to measure broadband speeds
We first became aware of this campaign via a Tweet from EU Vice-President Neelie Croes:
We’re hiring! More volunteers needed to measure #EU #broadband speeds w @samknows http://ow.ly/8EuGV http://ow.ly/8EuMm
The European Commission and SamKnows are together aimin to provide Europe with reliable and accurate statistics of broadband performance across Europe.
They are currently recruiting volunteers who will receive a purpose-built broadband measurement unit (aka the SamKnows Whitebox – pictured) which can be plugged into the existing modem/router.
