You are cordially invited to a (last minute, sorry) seminar THIS THURSDAY by Prof Nick Feamster:

Measuring Internet Access “Speed”: Five Lessons

Time and Location:
8h30-9h30a, Thursday 20 June 2019, UTC
Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/726693442

In this talk, I will survey some of the lessons that we have learned from more than a decade of designing and deploying Internet speed tests in the United States and abroad.  I will also discuss the limitations of existing client-based speed tests, and challenges on the horizon as Internet access speeds are becoming increasingly faster.
