I find this surprising. Like many hundreds/thousands of people around
the globe I find RIPE ATLAS an excellent and reliable way to get the
measurements you require.

You may not have had the best experience with your probe setup but I'm
sure that if someone can assist you with setup you'll be pleasantly
surprised at the ability the network of probes has to fulfill your needs
- after all it is the biggest measurement network on the internet today!

(at least that's what my t-shirt says)
