Interactive Maps and Data Visualizations

The interactive map below can be used to explore how internet quality of service varies across Ontario. The map is colour-coded based on the median download speed reported in the data for that area. Median upload, median latency, median packet loss, and the total number of observations for the area can be viewed by selecting an area with your mouse cursor.

The map of Ontario is partitioned by the Forward Sortation Area or CFSAUID (the first three alphanumeric characters of a postal code). Data is retrieved from Measurement Lab’s (M-Lab) Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) which collects speed test data from a variety of common speed test platforms. The data is available through an open access data portal (for more information see https://www.measurementlab.net/data/).
