    Text here, then


    There are also two other Privacy Policies which, even if you might not agree, are also automatically enforced and legally binding, even if you don't read them first.

    Ookla Privacy Policy http://www.speedtest.net/privacy.php

    As soon as i saw the word Jitter, i remembered something about clock skew, timing and jitter, and looked it up and found it.

    Covert channels in TCP/IP: attack and defence

    The creation and detection ofTCP/IP steganography for covert channels and device fingerprinting

    • All computers have a clock crystal to measure time, but imperfections cause some to run faster or slower than they should
    • This error is very stable over time, and so can act as an identity for a computer
    • Even if the computer changes IP address or moves, it sclock skew will stay the same and allows the computer to be tracked.
    • There are several ways to extract clock skew information remotely

    Now i'm not saying that just because this is a.GOV organised site, that anything untowards is happening, or will, just makes me wonder ? You should be aware that they are actively working on, Gagging Free Speech on the Internet :(

    CloneRanger do you use Speedtest.net or Pingtest.net? They are both legit and from the looks of it thats what the .gov site uses. You look way to far into things.

    It's all about the data, and the FCC is determined to get it one way or another.

    Thanks for the update :thumb:

    @whitedragon551

    I don't use either, even though they probably are legit.

    I'm sure others might think so too, at first. Unfortunately from ALL the things i've been reading/researching etc about the awful and criminal activities and lies ALL administations througout at least the past hundred years, and continue to do, in our name with our tax money, i just don't trust their intentions or motives.

    Being FORCED to fill in All those details isn't actually required, if it was really just for a speed test. From the quote above It's all about the data and we now know how much .GOV .NSA etc are actively building brand new Extremely large Data centers to spy on ALL of us and log as much as possible. Why help them with even things like this.

    But how many people out there would ? I wouldn't be surprised if most of them never think to do that, and will actually give all their real details :(
