By taking part in the National Internet Measurement Infrastructure (NIMI) project, Singaporeans can join thousands of other consumers in putting their ISPs to the test and ensuring they are getting the quality of experience that they are expecting. 

As part of a drive to expand the project, SamKnows is now offering free hardware devices called ‘Whiteboxes’ to new volunteers, allowing users to measure speeds of up to 1Gbps. Volunteers are asked to download the free SamKnows mobile app to receive accurate real-time data and analytics via the SamKnows dashboard. 

Singapore is one of 40 countries currently using the SamKnows measurement platform.
