Thinkbroadband speed maps
« on: April 04, 2017, 07:12:35 AM »

I just noticed that you have to take thinkbroadband' Maps with a big pinch of salt. Some data point at the top end of Trondairnis (extreme north east of Skye) is showing up as VM with over a hundred meg downstream. Must have borked the postcode completely when saving the test data.

Where do the maps' data originate? I thought it came from people like you and me!

They do indeed, I think it was a user's typo.

I think that makes your "with a big pinch of salt" is rather too dramatic in that case. "With some caution" seems more appropriate, as most folk are very careful entering their own postcode. That is unless they want mischief.
