NW WI Residents: Test Your Internet Speed Today!

Taking a Simple Internet Speed Test Will Identify Areas of Need in Northwest Wisconsin

Access to broadband is vital for the economic health and growth of Northwest Wisconsin. Yet many homes and businesses have no broadband access or internet service speeds that fall below FCC standards.

State and federal grants are available to bring broadband to underserved areas around the state, but in order to tap into those grants the state must identify those areas of greatest need.

To help ensure broadband access, NWRPC and Visions Northwest are working with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and partners statewide to roll out a simple internet speed test. We are asking residents and businesses to take the test to help establish where support is needed.

The test will help determine where internet speeds are below FCC standards and where the state needs to focus on building the broadband infrastructure.

To take the test, residents and businesses simply need to visit https://www.nwrpc.com/speedtest, from their home or work location, by May 8, 2022. It will only take a few moments and personal information is always protected and never shared. Even those residents without internet access can help by logging onto the site from a friend’s home or the local library. Click on “Enter an address with No Available Service” to complete the survey.
