Nebraska's Public Service Commission (PSC) is asking Nebraskans to take a simple, fast online test that will capture their current Internet speed, which will feed into a statewide database. The information collected could help both policymakers and Internet consumers improve service.
As part of the Nebraska Broadband Initiative, which aims to increase broadband access and adoption, especially in unserved or underserved areas of Nebraska, a new website was launched: Nebraska Broadband (broadbandmap.nebraska.gov).
To take the test, go to: Nebraska Broadband Mapping Project (http://nebb.broadmap.com/StateMap/). Instructions for taking the speed test are available. In addition to testing, site visitors can provide feedback on their Internet access.
Lapin Law Offices would urge all Nebraskans to take this simple online test. The results of the test should benefit all of us.
