Mobile Wireless Drive Test

2022 Symposium People's Choice Awards Winner - Biggest "WOW" Factor; Best Technical Session Highlights Presentation

Brief Project Description: The Vermont Department of Public Service is partnering with Ookla to get an objective, third-party view of mobile wireless network coverage and performance throughout the state. Personnel from the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) will drive all state-maintained highways in the state. The VTrans drivers will have a kit of handsets supplied by the six facilities-based providers operating in Vermont: AT&T, FirstNet, T-Mobile, US cellular, Verizon, and VTel Wireless. These devices will be configured to continuously conduct internet tests and voice calls using Ookla’s app as the driver navigates the road.
