Measure national cellular performance with CrowdSource

Crowdsource is designed to provider government regulators with a tool to collect huge amounts of nationwide data to help them understand national cellular performance. Its modular design allows regulators to pick and choose what features to include. The benefit of this is a reduced build time of the application, so you spend less time thinking about app design and more time analysing data. 

All of the data collected by the applications is ingested into our analytics platform, SamKnows One.

Neutral and fair mobile measurements

Give consumers a reliable way to measure their fixed and cellular broadband performance in a handy app.


Add your own logo and choose the apps colour scheme.

Supported tests

Download, Upload, Latency (includes Jitter and Packet loss), Web browsing, and YouTube streaming measurements.


We currently support English, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Further additional languages can be added as necessary.

Simple to customise with a primary and secondary colour and application logo.

Smartphone integration with our Mobile SDK

Quickly build a broadband testing app powered by SamKnows Technology, or add speed test functionality to your existing app. Our mobile SDK built in a modular way so you can choose to include a selection of pre-built and tested features, see factsheet for details. The SDK is available on both iOS and Android platforms. All of the data collected by the Mobile SDK is ingested into our analytics platform, SamKnows One for analysis.

Test cellular and Wi-Fi

Currently supports Download, Upload, Latency (includes Jitter and Packet loss), Web browsing and YouTube streaming measurements. Users of the SDK can configure any parameter of the included tests.

Environmental data

The SDK captures environmental data, including physical location, cellular network information, Wi-Fi information, and handset and operating system information.


Documentation and source code for a sample application.

Our mobile SDK already powers many in-app speed tests, such as the eero app and the My BT app. We’ve produced standalone applications for the communication regulators FCC and OFCA.

Monitor cellular coverage with Audit

SamKnows has been working with government agencies, and their enforcement officers from around the world, to develop a cell phone app for drive-testing to identify locations that lack cellular network coverage. This app can be given to people on the ground quickly, and the data can be used to direct repair efforts, helping to bring people back online and save lives. This same solution is being used to audit the coverage maps published by mobile operators to ensure they are correct.

Continuous testing

The app runs continuous download, upload, and/or latency tests, and collects a vast amount of environmental data.

Pinpoint problems

Key data points like signal strength, bearer, cell tower identifier (amongst others) allow engineers to identify problem areas and deploy field efforts effectively.

Coverage maps

All of the data collected by Audit is ingested into our analytics platform, SamKnows One. Visualise to collected data on maps to see where connectivity is available and use its analytical features to uncover valuable insights.

The test runner will show the overall progress of the measurements and intermediate results. Upon completion, users can either restart a measurement or directly share their results through social media.
