TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Two government entities are encouraging Leon County residents to participate in an internet initiative.
According to a press release from the Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Office of Broadband, the two offices are encouraging Leon County residents to participate in the Florida State Internet Speed Test.
Participation will help determine the need and opportunities for broadband in the community.
An internet speed test allows citizens to determine the performance of their internet service within their residence.
The results will be displayed on the Florida Broadband Availability Map.
The map will help the Economic Opportunity Department determine where additional Internet access is needed.
Individuals can go to https://floridajobs.org/community-planning-and-development/broadband/office-of-broadband to access the speed test.
Citizens and business owners are also invited to participate in a broadband demand survey.
