We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
netBravo is a free mobile application intended to map the speed, quality and access to the internet. Once installed on the smartphone, netBravo samples the radio waves and monitors the quality of wireless signals in the user's surroundings. The app records technical parameters of the signals that a mobile device is able to receive – Wi-Fi, 4G, 3G, and GSM – and as the user moves around, it feeds information to a map of Europe.
