Take the Internet speed test
Businesses, students and residents of rural Prince Edward Island need improved internet speed to be competitive and successful. It is estimated that about 20 per cent of Islanders cannot access adequate internet services, mainly in rural areas.
Island residents and business owners are asked to participate in a survey and Internet speed test.
What device should I use to take the test?
Ideally, you should complete the survey and speed test from your home or business computer (laptop, desktop or tablet) if you have one. A mobile phone can be used if it is connected to your home or business network. Only one response per household or business is required.
What is the test measuring?
The online test will measure and record the upload and download speeds of your Internet service.
How will the results of the survey and test be used?
Results will help to map Internet speeds across the province and better identify where improvements are most needed. The ultimate goal is to ensure rural Islanders can acquire reasonably priced services that provide the speeds necessary to use today’s technology.
