Help Improve Internet Speeds in Our Community in Three Clicks

Broadband Speed Testing - Why is this Important!

To help improve internet speeds across Wisconsin, the Department of Public Instruction is teaming up with Measurement Lab, a non-profit broadband advocacy organization, to test home internet connection speeds. You can help out by testing your home internet speed with Measurement Lab’s broadband speed test. All it takes is three clicks--it’s that easy.

Why Is This Important?

The data will give the Governor’s Task Force on Broadband Access (and other broadband task groups) the information they need to target improvements where internet speeds and performance are poor.  Your Input Is Critical

In order to get an accurate picture of the state, we need a lot of accurate data. That’s where you come in. The more people take the broadband internet speed test, the clearer picture we can get of where internet speeds need the most help.

To get started:

On a device connected to your home internet, click on the link to the M-Lab broadband speed test.
Agree to the Data Policy.
Click Begin to start the test.
Consider running the test multiple times, at different times of day, as your internet speed can often vary throughout the day.

Thank you for your help in improving internet speeds in our community!
