FCC chairman Tom Wheeler launched a Speed Test app for iOS devices, available in the iTunes App Store. The FCC Speed Test app is an expansion of the Measuring Broadband America program from fixed to mobile broadband.
The Measuring Broadband America program, which has released three reports on fixed broadband networks, is a private-public partnership designed to bring clarity and competition to the broadband service marketplace.
In November, the Commission unveiled its first public version of the FCC Speed Test app for Android smartphones in the Google Play store. Mr. Wheeler made the announcement at the Mobile World Congress, currently under way in Barcelona, Spain.
