Commission to Test Nebraska's Broadband Access
The Nebraska Public Service Commission is looking at Nebraska's residential access to broadband service.
The commission is asking state residents to take an online test that will gauge and record their current Internet speed in a statewide database in an effort to improve access to Internet services.
The Nebraska Broadband Initiative aims to increase broadband access in underserved areas of the state. The Public Service Commission contracted with BroadMap to collect, verify, report and map broadband availability by location throughout the state.
Those wishing to participate can go online to http://broadbandmap.nebraska.gov. Visitors to the site will find instructions for conducting a test of their broadband Internet service speed. They can also provide feedback on their Internet access.
