Analysing Saudi's fixed and mobile broadband performance

We need your help to make our national broadband better. We’re looking for Saudi internet users ready to use our free of charge tools to measure their own broadband performance. The data will be used to help improve internet performance across the Kingdom. Explore all the ways you can get involved below.

Project goals

The data collected will help us analyse our national fixed-line broadband infrastructure across the Kingdom. Regular reports will be published showing our findings. These reports will help inform the public about the quality of services available in Saudi Arabia.

Overtime the data we publish will increase transparency and encourage competition in the telecommunication industry. Plus it will help guide the Commission’s long-term strategies to improve Saudi’s national infrastructure and it’s connections to the rest of the world.

Quality of experience tests

Content servers are spread out all over the world, the physical distance and performance to each of them is unique to every broadband user. The Meqyas project is completely unique that we measure the performance across a number of different metrics to these real-world content servers.

Quality of service tests

Monitor the service provided by your ISP to your home 24/7 with our suite QoS tests. As with all of our tests, we only test when you're not heavily using your internet, and it won't interfere with your current internet activity.

All the data from your Meqyas Whitebox is safely stored in the Meqyas dashboard.
