Why should I take the speed test?

By taking the speed test, you are helping Kenosha County and your local community achieve greater access to high-speed internet. 

The more Kenosha County residents and businesses take the speed test, the more likely it is that internet service providers who serve the County will qualify for grants from the State of Wisconsin and the federal government. Typically, grant money is allocated to areas with the lowest download and upload speeds. 

The data collected from this test may also be used for school district and government planning.
