A simple proposal: allow people on limited data packages to run speedtest for free instead of having to use some of the limited data allowance.
Why should giffgaff do this for us?
Lately 3G data can be slow at times and trying to evaluate speed against location, time of day etc uses up some of a member's data allowance while running tests.
4G is about to be launched as a trial - and the first thing many people will be wanting to do is test speeds. With a limited 1GB per month, if you run say one speedtest per day that alone will use more or less the whole 1GB in a month! (based on reports of speedtest 4G using 30MB per test)
Usually speedtest is run due to possible service issues so I think this would be a nice thing to offer. What to you think?
Doesn't have to be speedtest specifically but that seems to be the most popular
Could limit to say first 1 test per day free on speedtest to prevent excessive use
Apparently mobile speedtest uses < 10MB on 3G but around 30MB on 4G testing
Edit - if gg can collect the speed test data e.g. via the iOS and Android apps and make use of this data e.g. to improve service quality then so much the better.
