Rural Broadband Coalition: MN Broadband Speed Test

We want Your Feedback sign

The Minnesota Rural Broadband Coalition is asking residents across the state to participate in the Minnesota Broadband Speed Test Initiative. The goal of this project is to create an accurate statewide map of where internet service is available and what internet speeds people receive. Currently, broadband speed and availability maps rely heavily on Internet Service Provider (ISP) submitted data. This ISP-submitted data often does not accurately depict the internet speeds or services available to Minnesota residents and businesses.

The Minnesota Broadband Speed Test Initiative takes less than a minute to complete and can be completed using any computer or mobile device. Those with no internet access at their homes are encouraged to visit a local library or drive-in hotspot in their community, or use their mobile device to take the survey and check the "no service available" button to record their physical address.
