Abstract

Internet measurements have previously been done mostly from research labs and universities. The number of home users is growing rapidly and we need a good way to measure their network performance. This thesis focuses on building a web application that allows users to check what their network is like for online activities they are interested in. The application has minimal impediment to use by only requiring a Web browser. A list of online activities we offer users to choose from includes browsing web site categories such as news or social networks, having voice and video conferences, playing online games and other activities.
