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.

Who is Meqyas?

Meqyas is an initiative by the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) who have partnered with SamKnows to implement and operate the Meqyas measurement platform using world-class technologies and tools.

Project goals

The data collected will help us analyse our national fixed-line and mobile 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.

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

Your privacy is paramount

All tests mimic typical internet usage, no information about your browsing history is stored and all data is completely anonymous.
