Get St George Broadband on the map - take the speed test

Image
  Update from the Broadband Committee The Connect St. George Committee is asking the St. George community to participate in  Maine Broadband Coalition's Speed Tes t .  The goal of the “Get Up To Speed” initiative is to gather data from across the state to generate the most comprehensive map of both the presence and quality of internet in Maine to date.  How does this help the Connect St. George initiative? The new speed testing initiative is the crucial next step in ensuring the delivery of broadband throughout the state and will help local, regional, and state leaders develop projects and steer investments to the places that need it most.  The test takes less than 1 minute (depending on your internet) and will help us move our project forward.
