FCC re-launches Android speed test app for cellular and Wi-Fi speed data collection
Back in 2010 the FCC launched an Android app that allowed users to test their data connection speeds. The FCC used this app to collect anonymous speed data from mobile devices. After a brief period of collecting this data, the FCC removed the software from sale.
Today the app was relaunched for modern Android devices. The data is being used to create a map of data speeds across the country. You can also review your own data from previous speed tests sorted by connection type. You can grab the app for free on the Google Play Store.
