A single measurement of download or upload speed of 10 to 15 seconds duration between a specific consumer location and a specific remote server location.
If download load > 64 Kbps downstream, defer download test for one minute.
If upload load > 32 Kbps upstream, defer upload test for one minute .
Reevaluate before retrying the test, continue at one-minute intervals until the speed test can be run or the one-hour test window ends and the test for that hour is canceled.
A single measurement of latency, often performed using a single User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packet or a group of three packets sent at essentially the same time, as is common with ping tests.
If consumer load exceeds 64 Kbps downstream, defer test for one minute.
Reevaluate before retrying the test.
