Speed test with FCC minding the store

This refers to the version of the app released January 2021. The app seems to be transparent about privacy and can be constrained to not use to minimize mobile data. The app is light weight by modern standards, “only,” 35 megabytes. This app seems to give somewhat more optimistic performance ratings than Ookla or Dslreports/speetest. Hmm, maybe ISPs are cooking the books a little to make sure that when Uncle Sam is watching, performance looks better than it would otherwise. This app can’t be faulted for any cooking of the books ISPs might do. It is worthwhile to run this app so Uncle Sam can build an ISP performance database.

Exciting Ray of Light from a Government Agency

I am excited to see the FCC taking a measurable step toward improving connectivity for people in the US. The test speeds seem accurate, the privacy policy clear, limiting mobile data is useful, and the test definitions appreciated. As an IT professional, I am aware of a lot of misinformation surrounding latency, packet loss (thank you me the hacker!) and hope this app improves connections for everyone!

Simple and usable!

Nice to see a straightforward speed test. If it helps compare non-biased performance across the country and different areas, and provides good data to target bandwidth improvements in under-resourced areas. Might be good to add a section in the app to show what data is/isn’t collected by using the app? Especially vs commercial speed test apps.

If you can judge a book by its cover...

Then this APPEARS to be the best speed test app. Due to the nature of it being an iOS app, I understand we're not gonna get to see a lot under the hood to begin with. While the results and tests SEEM the most realistic and genuine in their reporting, I don't know how any of us could know if it's truly legit.

Average Speed

I like this speed test cause it gives you the average of the test results. I really don't care that I got a burst speed of up to such and such for a fraction of a second like the other tests do if it's not going to be representative of actual data usage.
