I have one of their probes and the certainly work well. All you
need is a USB and ethernet port to run one.
Having never done it
before I have put a traceroute request in, will post what results they
give you once it finishes.

There's a number of possibilities
1) The RIPE ATLAS project (https://atlas.ripe.net/
) has a
that allows RIPE members to request a traceroute from
to a destination. The current system will pass the
work out to around
700 probes and return a traceroute result set some
Perhaps we could seek to deploy something like the RIPE
around the country or even better push something
There's already a dozen or so of these probes
2) Gaurab posted something here the other day about NLNOG
that's another option.
Whatever we come up with let's find
a way to make it possible for
people to easily run such tests and make
data and the results
public as a way to improve our network
