In battle of the speed tests, CalSPEED replicates real user experience

After two weeks of testing comparing the CPUC speed test app CalSPEED with the FCC speed test app and a private speed test app, Ookla, we are finding that CalSPEED consistently measures lower speeds and higher latency. We believe this is more reflective of user's real world experience and a better measure of how the providers, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, operate their networks. The stakes are high in this experiment because telecommunications companies are touting mobile wireless as the broadband wave of the future, but how reliable is mobile wireless and is it a true substitute for a fixed wireline broadband connection?
