Indiana Broadband Strategic Partnership assessing rural broadband - Indiana Speed Test

To assess broadband needs in rural and urban Indiana communities, the Indiana Broadband Strategic Partnership (IBSP) launched the Indiana Speed Test - a crowd-sourced internet speed test that focuses on enabling cost-effective planning and deployment of broadband. 
The broadband speed test will make data available for decision makers regarding broadband service needs in unserved or underserved areas.  


To help ensure that Shelbyville and Shelby County have the best chance for future broadband funding, such as Indiana’s Next Level Connections Grants and a variety of federal grants, local residents are encouraged to take the Indiana Speed Test (link here).  Respondents will be asked to fill out an address, but no personal identifying information will be requested, and tracking cookies are not used – per the INFB website. 
Please note, for the most accurate results, the Indiana Speed Test should be run from a residence, rather than a business.   

Take the test today:
