Test Your Internet Speed To Help Improve Broadband Access

The state is urging residents to take the Kentucky Broadband Speed Test, a crowd-sourcing project to gather data needed to expand internet home access for distance learning, telework and telehealth. You can take the free test until February 18.

Families without internet access at home are urged to connect via a business, library or friend’s house and enter their address to register that their home does not have internet access.

“We need as many Kentuckians as possible to take this internet speed test, to get an accurate picture of who has adequate internet access across the state,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. “The more speed tests taken, the better understanding we will have of our state’s internet capabilities, and the better prepared we will be to repair and expand it.”

Kentuckians who participate in the speed test will help detect slow spots around the state and where Wi-Fi access and affordability are lacking.
