Lee County offers survey and speed test to identify locations with poor internet access

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Lee County representatives said they understand the importance of having fast internet, so now they’re doing something about it.

The County is helping the state with a survey and a speed test.

“What we have set up is a website to make it super easy. If you go there you can click on take the speed test which would take you to a link the state set up,” said county Communications Coordinator Betsy Clayton.

County leaders said during the pandemic, more people ended up working from home, going to school online, and using Telehealth services.

But not everyone was getting efficient service.

So now, the state wants to make a map that shows areas where the needs are met and also the areas that need improvement.

“The more data we can get about internet service and calls being dropped in Lee County the better we will be able to help the state move forward with some good projects,” said Clayton.

The link to the survey can be found under Newslinks. Once you put in your personal information it will take about 10 seconds to load your results. After that, it will show you how many megabits you’re getting per second.

“In terms of when you can expect things to get better, that’s on horizon but the timeline is not certain because obviously after you do a survey you need to put the data together, and then that will result in potential projects or things like that,” said Clayton.
