The commission is asking for some 10,000 volunteer households to take part in a study on real-world broadband speeds. The users would attach a special device to their home networks which would monitor and report broadband speeds to the agency.
The study is part of a campaign by the commission to make broadband providers more accountable. The commission is looking for proof one way or the other on whether broadband providers are actually delivering the access speeds they promise in their advertisements.
So, if you want to participate in a study that could lead to more honest advertising amongst ISPs, and you don't mind letting the government have access to your network activity, you might want to ring up Uncle Sam and let him know you're interested at testmyisp.com
