Lee County and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s Office of Broadband, is asking residents and visitors to take a survey and an internet speed test to evaluate current broadband capabilities and determine areas in need of added service.
Surveys may be taken online or in person at Lee County libraries and recreation centers during the month of July. The survey and a full list of locations offering it is available HERE.
The speed test can be found on FDEO’s Office of Broadband website, or by visiting the county website landing page (leegov.com/broadband) and clicking on the speed-test link. This test will take less than a minute and participants are encouraged to take it from multiple locations including worksites, homes and from smart phones in areas where internet connections are typically difficult.
Participation in the survey and speed test will help identify local gaps in high-speed internet service and will help advance the state’s overall broadband infrastructure expansion goals. The speed test will assist in further developing Florida’s Broadband Availability Map.
