Help Close the Digital Divide in Montana

An internet connection is crucial for residents of Montana for school, work and staying in touch with friends and family. As such, the Montana Department of Administration’s ConnectMT broadband effort is conducting research to increase broadband access and quality across the state. To meet the needs of as many Montana residents as possible, it is important that officials understand the experiences and opinions of both individuals and community groups.

They are asking residents of Montana, 18 years or older, to take the survey   and tell them about your individual experiences and opinions on broadband access. The survey is being administered by Summit Consulting, LLC on behalf of ConnectMT.

The survey will ask about your internet download and upload speeds.  Click on ConnectMT  and scroll to the bottom of the page to take a speed test. The speed test will give your download and upload speeds.  I did 3 tests and took the middle speed as being representative.

After doing the speed test click on The Survey  to take the Montana State Department of Administration Survey.
