What if my speeds are less than my provider claims to offer?

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) report their coverage information to the FCC twice each year, which includes the advertised speeds offered at different locations. These reports frequently overestimate coverage and affect rural communities more frequently. If your speeds are slower than advertised, please check your service and we will report your problem to the FCC.

Additionally, some grants that the County plans to pursue use “delivered” or “available” speeds instead of advertised speeds to determine eligibility. Logging real-world speeds with the FCC Speed Testing app will provide a more accurate snapshot of service and may open avenues for more funding.
