Thanks to Measuring Broadband New Zealand, if you are selected to participate you will receive a SamKnows Test Kit containing:
The Whitebox is a purpose-built hardware measurement agent capable of measuring fixed-line broadband connections of up to 1Gbps.
It supports a wide range of measurements, from download speed to packet loss, and can detect cross-traffic. This means that it only runs tests when you are not heavily using your internet, and it won't interfere with your current internet activity such as streaming a movie, playing games, and so on.
On the SamKnows One dashboard, your cloud-based web portal, you can:
Using this intuitive and powerful tool, you can be confident about your internet connection.
Did you know that…
The Whitebox only runs tests when you're not using the internet? It checks your network activity and if the line is busy, it will wait a while and try again later. This is called cross traffic detection.
We do this so your Whitebox measures your internet performance under the same network conditions, and doesn't interfere with your internet experience.
Your e-report card will summarise your internet performance from the previous month. Reminding you of your provider and plan, it will allow you to spot any discrepancy you might not have noticed otherwise. You will also find internet-performance related news and updates. To dig into it and better understand your internet performance, log into your SamKnows One dashboard and analyse your results.
