ISP Monitor Update

From time to time, I will post updates about the ISP Monitor website and software and offer some sneak previews. So what have we been up to?

Compare Subscriptions
The engine that generates the subscriptions pages has been rebuilt. We were still using a static html frame and this has all been made dynamic. This also allows us to quickly add or change fields in the future. The page loads about twice as fast now as well. Soon we’ll add support for the “Boost” and “Speed” packs from Dommel. We’re also working on adding the subscriptions which include telephone services like Dommel HomeConnectand Scarlet Box. Obviously the engine needs some more tweaking 🙂

I also started working on a CMS to manage the subscriptions. It’s about the only thing I don’t have a frontend for yet. This will also (finally) allow others besides me to add subscriptions, hopefully getting some more international content.

Speed Test Maps
I added the ability to filter providers to make it easier to compare with “what you have”. A feature I wanted to add for a long time and was surptisingly easy to add 🙂 Finally those coding standards turned to some good use!

Software
Not much going on here. Dommel was fixed, dxADSL was added and still waiting for word from EDPnet. Beta is available at the usual location.
