About the Speed Test
A speed test is a way to measure the speed between your device and a server in real-time using your internet connection. The speed test can be completed using any device that has an internet or cellular connection. You will see download, upload, and latency.
Why Are We Doing This?
The goal of this project is to create an accurate region map of where internet service is available, where it is unavailable, and what broadband speed residents are currently receiving.
Speeds and geographic information will be used to generate mapping tools for communities that are planning broadband expansion projects or to help organizations pursue grants to support infrastructure improvements.
ROI’s speed test project is part of a larger regional Digital Inclusion Initiative launched in November 2020 to advance broadband and connectivity across the Indiana Uplands. ROI’s Digital Inclusion Initiative is intended to help identify the information necessary for counties, communities, and the region to accelerate efforts to achieve the digital resources, sometimes referred to as digital capital, necessary for regional prosperity and economic competitiveness.

What If I Don’t Have Internet at Home?
We still want to hear from you! We also need to know where service is unavailable in our region. If you do not have any service at your household or workplace, let us know while using a local hot spot or using a cellular device.
