TrueNet, launched today, is a company dedicated to the accurate measurement and reporting of broadband performance. TrueNet is a joint venture between Catalyst IT, leading open source IT experts, and Jonette Consulting, a company specialising in broadband reporting analysis.
Computerworld (9 July 2010) reports that Graham Mitchell, the CEO of Crown Fibre Holdings is lamenting the size of sections in New Zealand. To get fibres to the home as planned, for many homes, fibre must be placed in the ground, from the road to the house, hence the problem. Innovative ways of getting them onto the ground are necessary if the project is to succeed - recall your driveway, paths, trees, fences - the underground fibre may need to go under them.
TrueNet is keen to increase the number of volunteers to our tester database. We started with friends, family and colleagues, but we are now ready to expand to enable the level of accuracy demanded for commentaries on the performance of broadband to be accurate and reliable.
Our testers will be sent a router that they simply plug into their first Ethernet socket in their network, replug all their other ethernet devices into our router, turn on and bingo tests are automatic. We can update testing remotely so no need to do anything else.
