What can you do when your broadband internet connectivity slows down, making some web applications tedious or impossible? How can you measure and compare the quality of broadband service within the same telecom network or across different service providers? The Ashoka-Tissa method, a simple and free software developed by LIRNEasia and IIT Madras, enables just that: with it, you can gather evidence before taking it up with telecom operators.
In this short video, LIRNEasia, a regional ICT policy and regulation think tank active across the Asia Pacific, sums up their experience in developing a user-friendly method to measure broadband quality of service experience -- and how they engaged telecom operators and regulators in South and Southeast Asia from 2007 t0 2010.
