In 2010 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) embarked on a project to accurately measure American broadband.  The FCC appointed SamKnows, created a collaborative working group and the Measuring Broadband America initiative was born.

Fast-forward three years and the project has seen three reports published with a recorded positive increase in the level of performance being provided to consumers by participating Internet Service Providers (ISPs).   To accurately measure your fixed broadband, and help improve American broadband sign up here.

In 2013 the FCC, working with SamKnows, expanded the project by announcing the launch of the new FCC Speed Test application, increasing the scope of the initiative to accurately measure mobile broadband. By signing up and downloading the app consumers are able to take an active part in changing the face of American mobile broadband.

The mobile app is now available for Android and can be downloaded from the Google Play store.  The iPhone app is now available here  in the App store.
