We all want to know. Make sure your speeds are as good as your ISP promised and help us benchmark Canada’s broadband industry. We are looking for volunteers to put their ISP to the test.
Free dedicated performance monitoring device
The Whitebox manufactured by SamKnows simply plugs into your router and tests your internet performance at the source. This is probably the most reliable and trusted method of monitoring home broadband performance.
As ISPs supply faster and faster broadband, it’s likely that speed isn’t limiting the quality of your internet experience. It can be other factors such as latency and application performance, all of which can be measured and monitored on the SamKnows Connected Home Dashboard which all volunteers get free access to.
Wi-Fi is the most popular method of connecting to the internet in the home. New Wi-Fi standards promise extra speed at the expense of less coverage and penetration through solid walls. It’s not widely understood that the available speed at your router isn’t the same as the available speed on your device over Wi-Fi. SamKnows RealSpeed is designed to measure the difference to help volunteers on our study understand and optimise their own home network.
Test My ISP is a research initiative conducted by SamKnows, a pioneer in the field of national broadband monitoring. It’s purpose is to gather independent data about the broadband performance in Canada. It’s free for any broadband customers in Canada to participate in the study. If selected, you will receive a Connected Home Kit. All you need to do is plug the Whitebox into your router at home and it will automatically Test your ISP.
