Test Your Broadband Speed

If you can't get broadband at your home or business, please select the “No Broadband” button in the form below. You must include your street address so that we can plot your location, which will appear as a BLACK dot on the 16-county map.

If you do have broadband, please follow these steps to run the Speed Test:

Click BEGIN TEST to start.

The test will first measure your DOWNLOAD speed (recording it in the top left corner of the speed-test window).

The test will then measure your UPLOAD speed (recording it in the top right corner of the speed-test window).

Please note your Speed Test results and record them in the form to the right. Please include the street address for the location where the test was conducted so that we can plot the results on “Mapping Broadband in WNC.”
