“Our analysis found that Cable ONE’s meter was accurate within a range of +/-0.7%, which is better than the industry standard,“ said Peter Sevcik, president of NetForecast.
The Cable ONE Internet data usage meter system measures and reports the amount of Internet data a subscriber consumes and generates. Cable ONE engaged NetForecast to independently audit the accuracy of the system.
NetForecast performed active reference tests in which a NetForecast PC and server generated the only traffic on dedicated test lines. NetForecast performed independent traffic measurements, obtained hourly usage meter records from Cable ONE for each location, and compared NetForecast’s measurements with Cable ONE’s records.
“We’re pleased to be able to confirm for our customers that our IP Detail Record (IPDR) system is accurately collecting, measuring and reporting their data usage,” said Kishore Reddy, Cable ONE Vice President of Product Development & Support. “Data counting accuracy is important to Cable ONE and our customers and we will continue to ensure that we meet or exceed our accuracy measurement benchmarks.”
NetForecast independently audits the accuracy of Internet Service Providers’ data usage meters, drawing on a decade of experience auditing meters for ISPs serving 80% of US wireline Internet customers.
