Join today

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and SamKnows have established the 'Measuring Broadband Canada' program in order to provide Canadian citizens with reliable and accurate data concerning broadband provision across the country.

Anyone who would like to be part of this project just needs to sign up. It might be worth reading the requirements before doing so just to make sure you're eligible to join!

On signing up, volunteers will receive a purpose-built broadband measurement unit, also known as a SamKnows Whitebox. The Whitebox is easy to install; once it has been plugged into the existing modem / router then it is good to go. Volunteers will also be able to see their own data from their broadband connection using a purpose-built SamKnows dashboard.

Please note, not everyone who registers will necessarily receive a SamKnows Whitebox. We do want to thank everyone for signing up and for working together to make Canadian broadband better!
