Speed Tests

Why you should test your internet connection 

High-speed internet or “broadband” services do not reach all County residents – especially those in sparsely populated rural areas with rugged terrain. We’re working hard to expand access using federal and state funding, but the County needs your help.  

The problem: Most funding is directed to people who don't have service or cannot get service of at least 25 Mbps. The service information is supplied by ISPs, which tend to overstate coverage when they report to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This means the County may get less funding than it needs to expand services.

The solution: Check your access to service and test your internet speed with the FCC Speed Test app on your mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.). This will provide valuable data that the County can use to correct coverage information and the opportunity to expand broadband services. It is also the primary way that the FCC can correct service claims from mobile providers.
