Utah Internet Speed Test Campaign

The Utah Internet Speed Test Campaign is a statewide initiative for all Utahns to self-report their internet speed at home, work, or wherever they are connected to the internet. The data collected will be mapped and used to invest in resources to improve broadband access across the state. This campaign includes all Utahns, whether you have excellent internet speeds or no access at all.

The results from the Internet Speed Test will help:

  • Identify areas of Utah where homes and businesses lack high-speed internet connection
  • Discover which households do not have an internet connection and the reasons why
  • Direct funds toward providing reliable broadband access throughout the state

Help us identify Utah’s areas with the greatest need for internet speed by taking the Internet Speed Test. It only takes 60 seconds.

The Internet Speed Test is available in English and Spanish. For individuals who do not have access to the internet, please participate by calling 1-435-777-TEST (8378).

What is the purpose of the Utah Internet Speed Test Campaign?

Taking the Utah Internet Speed Test along with completing the short survey will allow you to show state leaders where there is a lack of broadband internet to homes or businesses. This may be because there is no service in your area; perhaps it is too expensive, or maybe you don’t know how to use a computer or even have one. That is what we call the digital divide. With this information, the state can map areas of need and make investments that will eventually give everyone the opportunity to connect to the internet and close the divide.

On the other hand, maybe your broadband is great! We want to hear about it. Great connectivity in our state opens the door to quality education, employment opportunities, and healthy options. Please let us know where Utah is doing well. WE NEED YOU to help us get all of Utah connected.
