The goal of the test is to collect data around Indiana to determine which areas are lacking reliable internet service so that improvements can be made. The pandemic has exposed a digital divide for some Hoosiers, who need broadband access for everything from work and school to telehealth appointments and business growth.

The IBSP is a partnership between the Indiana Farm Bureau, Cook Medical Group, the Duke Energy Foundation, the Indiana Association of Realtors, Radius Indiana and the Regional Opportunity Initiative.

The Speed ​​Test was created by GEO Partners, LLC, a company working with multiple states to develop cost-effective broadband services.

This year, lawmakers made an unprecedented investment of $ 250 million to help develop reliable and affordable internet service, especially in unserved and underserved areas, according to a press release provided by Ziemke’s office.
