I lied.

Last time on my blog:

[snip] but I think I’ve spent enough time on this already.

I lied.

Yup, I have scraped Ziggo too. Turns out, they do have more of an API that they use to check speeds. Big coincidence that I found it, actually. Anyways, let’s just show the map:

Things of note this time are:

  • All of Delft that have Ziggo can get the (maximum personal) speed of 200/20, and large parts can also get the (business) speed of 500/40.
  • Relatively large parts of Delft (in my opinion) are just devoid of any DOCSIS.
  • If you did have Ziggo, you probably didn’t know their business speeds go up to 500/40. Now you do!
  • Their API was less reverse engineering than KPN’s, since it was built around capabilities.

The ‘capabilities’ that I found were: (shortflags are shown in the hoverbox on the map)

  • catv - No idea what this is (c in the shortflags)
  • fp500 - Footprint 500Mbps (f5 in the shortflags)
  • dtv - digital television (d in the shortflags)
  • mobile_internet - why is this here? (mi in the shortflags)
  • telephony - well, duh (t in the shortflags)
  • mobile - again, why is this here? (m in the shortflags)
  • internet - this one seems logical enough (i in the shortflags)
  • fp200 - 200Mbps footprint? (f2 in the shortflags)
  • catvfee - not sure what this is. Paid version of catv? (cf in the shortflags)
  • dtv-horizon - Probably if you can use the Horizon box (dh in the shortflags)
  • packages - no idea. (p in the shortflags)

Both these datasets are available on https://puckipedia.cartodb.com/datasets - do with it whatever you want.

I am not claiming copyright or responsibility on any of the data I processed into the map, I just provided it in another format that is easier to process. Do with it what you want, I do not care.
