About project MoQoS

The project aims at facilitating cooperation among national telecom regulators across Europe by creating, publishing and reusing open data related to broadband Internet on a newly created platform.

The project will establish a cross-border platform for crowdsourcing data related to the quality of service of high-speed Internet. Part of the platform will be enlarging and improving the application for collecting data on both mobile broadband and fixed-lines.

Methodology

The test delivers an accurate measurement of the maximum bandwidth available over a given Internet connection. This is achieved by transferring multiple parallel data streams over separate TCP connections within a predefined amount of time. The transferred data consist of randomly generated data with high entropy. It is not expected that the (pseudo) random number generator meets cryptographic requirements. However, it must effectively prohibit data compression during the transmission.
