The European Commission crowd-sourcing project is designed to gather and share radio spectrum data about mobile telephony coverage, WIFI channel occupancy, broadband and net neutrality. Anyone with a recent smart phone can download an app that will automatically record the characteristics of the signals they are getting on their phone –WIFI, 4G, 3G, 2G or nothing - and test the latency, upload and download performance of their Internet connection with additional net neutrality tests they can select. This data is saved locally to the phone and can be sent back to the SRM research database. The aim is then to plot the aggregated findings on a map, in an interactive web site.
