Re: We have had this QoS based contract exit law in Italy for a few years already
The idea behind this OFCOM-based 'real-Ookla' is that you can leave the lying Telco who has oversold their service, who is protected by very expensive leaving clauses - and move to another lying Telco who hasn't yet oversold their services. (I used to work in UK for a Telco - we refused to supply the whole region of Norwich/Norfolk because it wouldn't have made us enough money)
When I was able to leave the Telecom Italia contract, avoiding paying a couple of years for the no-service as a leaving penalty, I then moved to a DSL company that used a slightly more advanced DSLAM, they currently get nearly(*) 13mbps over the old degraded telecom lines. I also bought a backup 35mbs nearly(*) internet contract with a radio based provider from the local mountaintops, using Mexican hardware, metropolitan area WiMAX. And for third resilience, bought a 4G iPad with reliable but capped 75mbs up/down LTE.
(*)nearly! some days I get a 13mbps clock on the DSL, but with no empty buckets for the data, or just over-agressive deep profiling through a 100meg traffic-choke-point. Some days the 35mbps radio WiMAX is out, for hours, with no explanation but rarely together with the DSL.
Being based in an Italian village with slowly improving infrastructure, it's great to have the Apple iPad 4G/Wi-Fi hotspot as on the rare day per year when everything else is out, this has so-far worked - and has been needed.
The 100watt shortwave icom 745 with HF data is the 4th layer of resilience, and I think I could get a mobile tropo-EME system together in half-a-day as the portable long-yagis for 2M/70 are in the basement. lower datarate, but great LPI/LPD.
have a good day!
