The UM System wants to better understand the actual connectivity across the state.
We also want to understand the ways in which Internet services are used. We would like you to tell us about Internet service availability and use at a specific “location.” This location can be your home, business, or workplace.
From this speed test we can collect data about local broadband speeds and create a map for your community that will help in efforts to get grants and other support to improve broadband infrastructure in your area.
Please make sure that no one in your household is streaming videos or gaming while you take this test. If you are connected to school or work, please turn off your VPN during this test. Unless you enter an address with no available service, the address that you enter should be the address where you are right now. The speed test will not automatically document your speeds so please enter them in the survey to the right. You should see your location on the map below once you are finished.
If you do not have access to the internet because it is not an option at your location please select the box below that says “There is no internet service at this location”. You do not need to take the speed test or survey if you select that option. Just enter your address and that checkbox to record your location. That checkbox is for locations that do not have a wired or satellite option for the internet. Data connection through cell phones or hot spots do not qualify as connections to the internet.
Results Disclaimer: The average speeds reflected on the map will be skewed because the people most likely to participate in our speed test will be those with poor connectivity. Those who are served will be less likely to participate and as a result, the reported averages will be lower than reality. Still, this map allows us to identify areas of concern around Missouri. We use this map to prompt deeper conversations, warrant closer looks into connectivity throughout Missouri and to push for greater federal investment in infrastructure vital to the economic health and competitiveness of our residents.
