Inverse is bringing its ISP benchmarking service to the UK, having carried out industry-wide benchmarks in the US since 1996.
Inverse's ISP UK-Benchmark Report provides standardised, periodic comparative reports on ISP performance from an end-user's point of view, measuring things such as call failure rate, connection speed, average log-in time, DNS lookup time and Web failure/timeout rate.
Inverse will start by monitoring ten major UK ISPs: AOL, Compuserve, Cable and Wireless, Demon, IBM Global Network, MSN, Netcom, LinOne, UUNet and Virgin. ISPs subscribing to the report will receive specific data on themselves and certain competitors, as well as industry average data.
The latter will also be disseminated quarterly to the press.
