As in http://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/5256-want-to-help...

I think the research is likely to be an ongoing thing, as tracking performance needs to be done over a fairly long period of time to actually be useful.

Hi

I have also signed up, and have installed my box yesterday. Does anyone know if it is possible to view the results of the tests like on the SamKnows panel I've heard about?

Also does anyone know how much data this uses and whether it is likely to trigger the STM on the VM XXL package?

I have emailed ICM but not heard back yet.

Cheers

Dave

The one I've seen appears to be around 2GB a day, not privy to the algorithm used, so may be more, may be less.

2gb a day?!

I have signed up to this but that usage seems pretty steep to me!

Also how do you claim the £25?

The company sends out cheques automatically within a couple of weeks of connecting the device.

The cheque goes to the address where the testing device went

I suspect similar mechanisms will come into play as used for SamKnows and the ISPA testing we run, in that some ISP's add extra GB where they have allowance mechanisms to cater for this.

Looking at the provider list they were after, most are unlimited anyway.
