Meet the Volunteers
The Whitebox has shown innumerable delays due to site responses.
I thoroughly recommend the study as it can show up bottlenecks when the data is examined and correlated.
The connection between the ISP provided modem, and the router had dropped to 100 mbps from 1 gbit, and the SamKnows One dashboard made this very clear….. Measurable data on a reliable platform is very helpful.
There's no downside to the user, no privacy issues and the data is helpful for diagnosing connection issues.
The Whitebox helped me solve internet performance issues. It was an objective and independent referee when I experienced bad service.
