Internet Standards Tests !!

As part of the National Broadband plan, the FCC has begun a project to establish a standard test for measuring broadband performance. This test will cover every aspect of an Internet connection, from the speed of downloading a large file to the quality of video streaming or making a VOIP call. The purpose of the project is to provide consumers with much more information about broadband performance.

We are reaching out to you, because the FCC is looking for volunteers to help in the project. If you're interested in knowing more about the performance of your Internet service, please visit the FCC sign-up page at www.testmyisp.com. If selected, you will be sent a new NETGEAR router enabled with SamKnows performance measurement software.

To reassure you, the software only measures the performance of your Internet connection, and gives you access to the kinds of data that was only previously available with very expensive network monitoring tools. Also, your personal information will be strictly protected and at no time will any personal information be shared or made available without your consent.

Once your router is up and running, you will be able to view all of your performance data via a secure online reporting system. Over the next few months the FCC will work towards releasing a report describing the performance of broadband in the United States.

To find out more, please go to www.testmyisp.com.

It is a chance to get a free netgear router and be a part in proving the new standards for isps, but you have to be on one of the selected isp's on their web site. Which I am and then you have to be selected.
