Research Grants » Take the Broadband Speed Test

Help document actual broadband implementation in Pennsylvania and take the broadband speed test at

The Center for Rural Pennsylvania is sponsoring research, Broadband Availability and Access in Rural Pennsylvania, to analyze and assess broadband availability in Pennsylvania, and is asking Pennsylvania residents to participate in the research. By taking the broadband speed test at, residents can help document the current prevalence of high-speed, fixed broadband services across Pennsylvania. The test results will help Pennsylvania State University researchers, led by Professor Sascha Meinrath, to measure actual internet speeds. The test will also provide participants with information about their broadband connection.
