What are other last mile ISPs doing to measure the quality of their
connections? We all know pinging various destinations. We also all know
that pinging a destination doesn't necessarily tell you the whole quality

I currently have Smokeping pulling the HTTPS for about 20 - 25 of the "top"
websites, per the old Alexa rankings. I feel as though I could be doing
more. I am more closely wanting to emulate the end-user experience in a
repeatable, quantifiable fashion. I'd like to do A/B comparisons as well.
When I make X change, how does it change?

If I'm already doing the low-hanging fruit path, then so be it.
