Continuing its efforts to correct the data about the island in the FCC’s National Broadband Map, the Joint Telecommunications Advisory Committee has, in cooperation with the BIA, put up a new online speed test survey. This one is automatic. All you need to do is click a link and answer a few questions while the speed tests run in the background. The results are automatically reported into a database that the JTAC will use to provide correct info about speeds on the island to Michigan’s Broadband office. They are the ones in the best position to get the FCC to correct erroneous information about actual speeds available for internet service on the island. Use the handy button below to start the process.
A few important notes:
- If you are away from the island for the season, there’s an option there to answer the survey questions only. You can run the speed test when you return. Even if that is in the spring or later, the JTAC still would like to have you run the test when you are back.
- If you have service at more than one location, the JTAC asks that you run the test at each location.
The BIA joins the JTAC and both township boards in urging you to run the test. It’s important for the future of broadband service on the island.
