We realize during this unprecedented time, the need for reliable, affordable internet service in all parts of our community is more important than ever. Scott County Fiscal Court is working with a company called GEO Partners LLC to address this need. We need your help to test the broadband speed and access throughout all parts of Scott County.We are calling on all community members, including those with students in grades K-12 and citizens working from home, to complete a one-minute speed test. The test can be done from any device connected to your broadband internet signal in your home. Your participation is very important! Please complete the internet speed test by 5:00pm on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.Make sure your device is connected to your broadband service and no one in your household is streaming video or gaming at the time you conduct the test. Disconnect from VPN if you use it to work from home. For those individuals without broadband internet access in your home, the only thing you will have to do is enter the address of the home with no available service.Additional Information:The Scott County Fiscal Court, in partnership with the Geo Partners LLC is pleased to announce a crowdsourcing project covering all of Scott County. This broadband speed testing initiative is being conducted by GEO Partners, LLC. This test should provide the most comprehensive, accurate collection of actual broadband speeds ever conducted in Scott County. The speed test will result in statistically valid data and mapping. Scott County Fiscal Court will use this information to explore options to support a future broadband expansion project. With this information, we have the potential to seek grant funding from the FCC, USDA or Federal Cares Grant program. Our goal is to conduct 2000 speed tests from locations all over Scott County. We hope that citizens in the rural parts of our community will participate so that we can have data that truly shows us where we have broadband, and where it is lacking, to use this data on grant applications. The Scott County Fiscal Court recognizes that high-speed quality broadband is a critical utility to economic development, education, business, and virtual healthcare. The Fiscal Court is grateful for the partnership with GEO Partners on this project.
