Arcep consults on project to install API in operators' boxes to measure broadband QoS

Wednesday 24 April 2019 | 10:26 CET | News
French telecom regulator Arcep has published a draft decision on its project to create a so-called 'access ID card' enabled by an API, which will be installed in operators' boxes to collect data on the type of fixed access network used by the end-user (copper, cable, fibre) and the headline speed of the connection. The project is part of the regulator's efforts to measure the actual quality of service experienced by broadband users via a data-driven approach, as opposed to its previous method based on tests in a controlled environment.
