Data for the Index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speedtest every month.

Internet measurements made with Speedtest occur at the times and in the places that are most relevant to the person taking the test.

Each time a test is initiated, a snapshot of what the internet looks like in that place and time is recorded. When aggregated together, these individual experiences represent the typical internet performance for a given location.
