Take the Nevada Speed Test
Your help is needed to pinpoint the region’s most unserved and underserved homes and businesses. By logging on to www.nevadaspeedtest.org, a mapping tool which measures internet speeds, we can analyze home and business connectivity to identify strategies and funding solutions to improve our regional broadband infrastructure. It takes less than a minute and thanks for your help!

Surveys
Take the survey by July 23, 2021 to provide information on current internet demand, providers used, level of satisfaction and interest in upgraded speeds. Residential, Business and Visitor surveys are available. Surveys reposes will assist in planning strategies for better connectivity within the community.
