Join our broadband campaign...
Sign up with us today to accurately
measure your broadband performance.
Since 2008, SamKnows has been campaigning for clearer information about actual broadband performance. What we've found in the last two years is that we're not alone in wanting this. We've been joined in our campaign by consumers, campaigners, ISPs, governments, hardware manufacturers and application designers.
In order to improve transparency in broadband performance we created a series of tests that can be embedded into any consumer CPE and devices within the ISP network to build an accurate picture of network performance over time.
If you're a consumer in the USA, Europe, Brazil, Canada or Singapore and you're interested in finding out more about your internet connection - you can join our projects by hosting one of our Whiteboxes (SamKnows enabled CPE). We receive emails from people all over the world and are looking to launch projects in other countries, so watch this space.
You'll receive a free SamKnows Whitebox so you can measure the actual performance of your ISP. You'll also get a monthly Report Card on the performance of your ISP that compares what you're getting with what you're being sold, benchmarked against the whole panel. This report card can be used by ISPs to diagnose any issues with your connection and improve your performance without you having to go to the trouble of switching ISP. Everyone's a winner!
We’re working with major manufacturers to make our software available as standard on a series of routers and modems which you will be able to buy yourself and we’ll automatically start providing you with data, free of charge.
