Abstract

The intervention provides geo-located Internet performance data to assist in the evaluation of wireline Internet provision in Canada. It contributes public-domain data from Internet measurements collected across Canada during 2014. Measurements result from the Network Diagnostic Tool run through the Measurement Lab Consortium. Data submitted joins these measurements to pre-existing geographic information systems in Canada. The intervention at this point does not interpret data rather it hopes to contribute to the overall discussion at the hearings by submitting open data in a manner accessible to stakeholders and connected to other demographic data in Canada.
