Broadband Speed test needs everyone to participate

Visit to take the Kentucky Broadband Speed Test

Residents are encouraged by the Center for Rural Development to take the Kentucky Broadband Speed test. The test is free, anonymous, and can be completed in about one minute. If you took the test earlier, please consider taking it again.

The data collected will be used to determine broadband access in your community and create a map that will assist Kentucky communities in their efforts to secure grants and other support to improve broadband services.

The latest effort is meant to build on the data collected from the previous testing cycle. New data will make it possible to establish baselines and allow comparisons to earlier test results.

It is very important that residents in your community, and throughout Southern and Eastern KY, give us an accurate picture of which areas have adequate internet access and which areas are lacking.
