The certified Internet monitoring mechanism
18 December 2019
The tool certified by the President of UKE has been available to consumers since 1 December 2018. Unlike other online tools, the PRO Speed Test application verifies under which conditions the measurement was performed. It checks, among other things, such elements as the central processing unit load, type of a network interface card, presence of active VPN lines, intensity of traffic generated in the background, number of devices in the user's home network.
The mechanism consists of an Internet website and applications for desktop computers, WEB and mobile applications (available on Android and iOS systems). In line with the law, the measurement of a fixed line made by means of the mechanism enables determining non-conformity of performance and allows consumers to effectively claim their rights against the service provider. Due to legal and technical conditions, the measurement results obtained with the WEB and mobile applications are primarily informative.
During the first year, users made almost 30,000 certified measurements, and 440,000 in total. The average download speed for fixed-line internet and for mobile Internet was 123.4 Mb/s and 23.4 Mb/s, respectively. The upload speed was 44 Mb/s and 11.1 Mb/s, respectively.
