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

SamKnows WhiteboxThe 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.

If you’re interested in taking part, you can sign up here. However, it is worth reading the requirements first.
