FCC Speed Test app now available for iOS flavored devices1
The FCC will also conduct its own tests with the app at random, so don't be surprised if it just goes off in the middle of the day to get a reading. The app and collected readings are part of a program called Measuring Broadband America. So far, the FCC has issued reports as part of this program.
With many smartphone owners still a little paranoid about giving a government agency the ability to run a speedtest at will on their phone, there might not be that many takers for this app, which is free to install on your iOS flavored device.
