Is this similar to the UK (Ofcom, http://www.ofcom.org.uk/) and US
(FCC, http://www.fcc.gov/) regulators scheme that is being run by Sam
Knows at http://www.samknows.com/broadband/test_my_isp and
http://www.samknows.com/broadband/broadband_performance ?

I'd be quite interested to know the difference between them.
