MN Rural Broadband Coalition Launches Statewide Speed Test Initiative

test your speed

COVID-19 has shown us how important access to broadband is for every Minnesotan now that we’re being asked to work, learn, or receive essential services from home.  Broadband is no different than any other basic utility that people need and now, more than ever, it's an essential part of our daily lives.

The speed test can be taken with any device that has an internet or cellular connection and takes less than one minute to complete. No personal information will be collected. Testing data will be statistically valid and provide a map of what service levels are for any given area in the state. This information will be an important tool for communities that are planning a broadband expansion project through the FCC, USDA, or MN Border-to-Border Broadband Grant Program.
