Thanks to David, Fezal, Bharat and Selven (and taking into account my own data), I’ve collected more than 300 measurements over the week. I owe each of them a nice lunch at Lotus and a drink :-)
As a reminder, we all downloaded a 100kb and a 1000kb file from the US and Europe three times per day (hence 12 readings) for the whole week (including Saturday and Sunday).
Now that the data collection process has finished, I am now embarking on the analysis phase. I’ll use my limited knowledge of statistics to prove (or, perhaps, disprove) the following: Mauritius Telecom is not giving us the bandwidth we are paying for and, consequently, we are being robbed of the opportunity to participate in the Web 2.0 revolution.
Of course, I’ll keep you informed. I’m setting myself the deadline of Friday 20 July to finish writing an academic paper containing this analysis.
Thanks, once again, to all those who have helped me.
