FCC Speed Test app reaches 30,000 downloads in first week, generates 40,000 collections of data
So far, after one week, the app has generated 40,000 collections of data. Of this total, 25,000 of those tests were generated when the app user set off the speed test, while the remaining 15,000 came from scheduled FCC testing. 23,000 of the tests were done over a 4G LTE network. All of the major carriers were represented in the results, with network data obtained and measured by the FCC in large and small towns.
Other information released by the FCC revealed that 22,000 tests were conducted on a cell network while 16,000 came from a cellular network. The FCC's goal with this app is to improve the mobile broadband performance available to Americans. Currently the app is available to Android users only, although a version for iOS is expected.
