Mobile internet access service technological development enables quality of Service (QoS) guarantees to the extent that allows to use these services as an alternative to the fixed internet access services for everyday needs. In regard to this the world and regional, including European Union (EU), regulation foresees high expectations and broad spectrum of requirements to ensure the further development of mobile services, including end-user-oriented aspects. The regulation not only foresees the possible services, but also defines the mobile internet access monitoring requirements, that foresee that national regulatory authorities (NRAs) should able to determine provided QoS and stipulate the possible service development options, supervising end-user right. Additionally to that, EU regulation foresees a need to further ensure the comparable data analysis between the data gathered from different countries. For this purpose, the different QoS measurement tools, that are based on international standards and national needs, have been developed. Nevertheless, even thou regulation and standards foresee very detailed requirements for the measurements tools, data analysis, and some other QoS evaluation aspects, the practical measurement process, including requirements for QoS measurement equipment placement is not defined, resulting in non-comparable measurement results, as the measurements are made in different signal conditions which results in very limited possibilities to evaluate and analyse the received data, especially in case of long terms indoor measurements, made in one location. Therefore, in the research it is proposed to evaluate the placement of the measurement equipment based on the received signal parameters values, as they can be measured momentarily and do not require complicated measurement or evaluation process. Simultaneously universal QoS measurement equipment placement rules are evaluated and defined, to ensure that even in case the onsite signal parameters measurements are not possible, the equipment placements conditions are equally defined and ensure comparable measurement results for different measurement places.
