Abstract A lot of new applications and services come into use thanks to widely available broadbandaccessand highqualityof serviceparameter valuesforbroadband networks. Asbroadband access technologies develop and competition between different services becomes higher the need for addition regulation, for different services to coexist on equal terms, becomes necessary. As a result, net neutrality principles were introduced, which aim is to allow all services to ensure that there is no traffic discrimination on the internet. In the European Union European Commission developed regulation for net neutrality, providing basic net neutrality principles to be respected and implemented in all European countries. Outside Europe net neutrality question is also actual and is actively discussed and measures are taken to ensure that neutrality principles are implemented. Still many question regarding new regulation in net neutrality stay open. One of them is quality of service in scope of net neutrality. New regulation defines specific internet access services parameters of speeds to be measured and analysed for fixed and mobile networks. Those parameters include minimum, maximum, normally available and advertised speed for fixed broadband networks, and estimated maximum and advertised speed for mobile broadband networks. Regulation provides examples, but does not define the exact measurement and result analysis options most suitable for different measurement scenarios in fixed or mobile network As one of the corresponding projects — mapping of broadband service parameters when measurement results are visualised on map, is very actual, mapping options should also be considered, and to ensure that mapping for all countries measured parameters is united, and measurements are made and proceeded in the same manner in all countries. So, the way the network speed parameters are analysed and proceeded are very important also in the mapping context. Different scenarios of network parameter measurement result distribution are possible. As relevant regulations define specific parameters that should be measured, it is necessary to understand, and then implement very accurate and most suitable data analysis, taking into account different data distribution scenarios, to determine correct result. The main objective of this investigation is to determine analysis options and to choose optimal measurement samples of the quality of service parameters for the further analysis in the context of net neutrality principles providing united measurement and measurement result analysis methodology.
