Test your internet!

DPI (Department of Public Instruction) is committed to improving digital equity in the state of Wisconsin. They’re collecting data about internet speeds across the state this year and they need your help!

Visit M-Lab Speed Test to test the speed of your home internet.

What can you do:

Visit M-Lab Speed Test to collect data on the speed of your home internet. Test it more than once and at different times for a more complete picture. You can help make Wisconsin’s Internet better with just three clicks.

What they’re doing:

DPI (Department of Public Instruction) is collaborating with Measurement Lab (M-Lab) to collect data on internet connection speeds across Wisconsin. DPI will use M-Lab’s internet speed test data to create detailed reports and to provide maps of internet speeds across the state.

Why they’re doing it:

The data will give the Governor’s Task Force on Broadband Access (and other broadband task groups) the information they need to target improvements where internet speeds and performance are poor.
