Samknows has stopped streaming tests

Looking at my BQM plot the usual spikes from Samknows Streaming Tests weren't there so I checked my dashboard and they aren't even listed in the menu

Checking my off peak usage it is clear they have been reducing for a couple of days and have now stopped

Jim,

I take it you just don't read your replys most of the time like me.

I am waiting for a reply of more Clarity 'Hopefully' as to why they removed said tests.

And they said......

Hello,

We are currently not conducting video testing for those on your ISP and tier.

As requesed I have withdrawn your account.

I have attached a freepost shipping label, which will cover the postage cost of sending the unit back to us.

Thank you for participating.

Kind regards,

The SamKnows Team

 

Well done, well done... big pat on the back guys Crazy3

Re: Samknows has stopped streaming tests

I found that It wouldn't let me re-enable the tests after dissabling, which is when I put the question to Samknows.

So that may be the reason why yours still persisted a while longer.
