If all measurement conditions are met, the certified measurement allows to apply results of this measurement as conclusive findings about the quality of the IAS at a fixed location (so-called fixed internet), if it is offered on the area of the Czech Republic. This finding can be applied in case you decide to activate remedies available in compliance with national legislation.
In case of any significant and continuous or regularly recurring discrepancy of actual service performance regarding its upload and download speed, from the performance the IAS provider stated in the contractual conditions, you can submit a claim to the provider against the quality of the service (QoS) provided.
An important parameter to assess the service performance in case of IAS at a fixed location is the contractual speed of actually achieved speed. It determinates whether there are any discrepancies.
Another important parameter is the contractual minimum speed. If the actually achieved minimum download or upload speed decreases under the advertised minimum speed for the given direction of data communication, the service is having an outage, i.e. it is not being provided. Also, in this case you have the right to submit a claim against the service.
Note, that the CTU-NetTest measurement tool can be used for advertised download speed values up to 500 Mb/s (incl.) and for upload speed values up to 250 Mb/s (incl.), given the general nature of accuracy of the measurement tools based on web-browser principles.
Before carrying out the certified measurement, please, read carefully and fully the conditions of the measurement in the guide. It also includes a checklist which can help you carry out the certified measurement. You can send your questions about the certified measurement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please, pay attention especially to the following:
The certified measurement is a cycle composed of 6 time-diversified tests carried out during a period of one calendar month. A measuring cycle takes 1 hour and 30 minutes. Within the test, individual measurements are carried out automatically, having duration of 10 seconds for each direction of data communication (download and upload). The time spacing between individual tests is 15 minutes.
Please, send your questions about the certified measurement to email@example.com .
Note that web-browser bookmark with the running measurement must remain active to allow correct course of the certified measurement, otherwise the following test might not be started.
|Time||Down (Mbps)||Up (Mbps)||Ping (ms)|
The result of your measurement will be ready for download after all the time-diversified tests are finished.
Planned finish of measurement: approx %X%.

If random 3 tests out of total 6 tests of the certified measurement show the resulting (i.e. actually achieved) download or upload speed is lower than the normally available speed stated in contractual conditions, it is the case of significant recurring discrepancy of the service performance.
If 6 tests out of total 6 tests show the resulting download or upload speed is lower than the normally available speed for the given direction (download/upload), it is the case of significant continuous discrepancy of the service performance.
If a random test shows the resulting download or upload speed is lower than the value of minimum speed for the given direction, stated in contractual conditions, it is the case of service outage.
In case of both significant discrepancies, as well as in case of service outage, you can apply your right to submit a claim against defective service provision to your IAS provider.
