Hate when the Internet's slow? Do you ever wonder why the Internet in your friend's house works better than yours? You can find out more about faster Internet and broadband by taking a broadband speed test. This initiative was launched by Governor Neil Abercrombie with the goal of providing affordable, ultra high-speed Internet access for all of Hawaii's citizens. The data collected on wired and wireless Internet speeds will assist by identifying and closing gaps in service throughout the State.
To take the test, all you have to do is visit this link and take the 30 second test to check your Internet speed. You can take this test from different locations and using different devices such as laptops, tablets or smart phones. The long-term goal is for Hawaii to improve the reach of broadband access to areas around the state and improve the states technological future.
