Measurement of data transmission speed
Czech Telecommunication Office measures and evaluates selected data parameters of electronic communications networks.
Measurement and evaluation of the selected data parameters for both fixed and mobile networks is defined in general methodology “Methodology for Measurement and Evaluation of Data Parameters of Fixed Electronic Communications Networks, Version 2.1", and "Methodology for Measurement and Evaluation of Data Parameters of Mobile Electronic Communications Networks, Version 2.3, which are published and applied by the CTU in case of verification measurements on fixed or semi-fixed networks, and verification drive tests or stationary measurements in mobile networks. The measurements are performed using the Office’s own measuring devices (terminals) with clearly defined parameters, in fixed as well as in mobile networks.
Main aim of these documents is to describe and harmonise the procedures for measuring and evaluating data parameters of fixed and mobile electronic communications networks, from the perspective of the end-user and their access to the Internet service. The methodology of the measurement and evaluation of data parameters of fixed and mobile electronic communications networks are published in this section in order to transparently declare which methods the CTU applies for its controls and measurements performed to protect the rights of end users/consumers.
