Does anyone here know M-Labs, which Airbnb uses?

They self-describe thusly,

"In 2008, Vint Cerf, one of the “fathers of the Internet,” began a series of conversations with Internet researchers... [about] understanding their Internet performance over time. As a result of these conversations, M-Lab was founded to help address the core problems experienced by researchers and to promote large-scale open source measurement of the Internet.

M-Lab was founded in 2009 by New America’s Open Technology Institute, the PlanetLab Consortium, Google, and a group of academic researchers."

See https://www.measurementlab.net/about/ and https://speed.measurementlab.net/#/,

My run of it reported latency, but without any qualifiers...

New tool: Check the wifi speed in your Airbnb listing before you book<https://news.airbnb.com/new-tool-check-the-wifi-speed-in-your-airbnb-listing-before-you-book/>
As the growing flexibility to work and live from anywhere continues, being able to determine a listing’s wifi speed before booking is a must-have for digital nomads, remote workers, roadschoolers, traveling families, gamers, and creatives alike.

Wish they measured latency under load to give you a better score of your wifi experience!
