Australia's Academic and Research Network AARNet has announced a tool called "Measurement Lab (M-Lab)," to help researchers and Australians better understand the performance of broadband Internet connections.
"Do you know how fast your Internet connection is? You can try these tools out at measurementlab.net, test your Internet connection speed and diagnose problems affecting network connectivity."
"At Google, we're big believers in the power of measurement which's why we've supported Measurement Lab in other countries and we're delighted to support this project -- the first in Asia Pacific -- by providing Australian M-Lab servers jointly with AARNet. Transparency has always been crucial to the success of the Internet, and, by advancing network research and empowering users with more information, we hope that M-Lab will help sustain a healthy, innovative Internet," noted Google.
