Centre County Government announces the opening and closing dates for the Broadband Strategic Plan’s online internet survey and speed test.

Bellefonte, PA – Centre County Government with assistance from CTC Technology & Energy are pleased to announce the launch of the Broadband Internet Speed Survey which opened Monday, February 7, 2022, online at https://centrecountypa.speedsurvey.org and will close on Friday, March 25, 2022. The 5-minute survey is open to all Centre County residents and businesses who want to provide feedback on their internet services. The survey includes an internet test which will capture the speed of service at a location to determine if the internet service qualifies as broadband-level speed under the federal definition of 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload.

Residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to participate as all feedback collected will become part of the Centre County’s strategic planning efforts to identify communities unserved and underserved by broadband internet. Collecting resident feedback and speed test data will become part of the County’s Broadband Strategic Plan. The Plan will provide a framework of actionable steps towards increasing broadband services countywide into rural communities. Information collected will be used solely for the County’s planning efforts and participation is fully voluntary.

A paper-copy survey is available at https://centrecountypa.gov/2258/Broadband for anyone who may not be able to complete the online survey with further instructions to return the paper survey.

Further feedback may be made to the Centre County Planning and Community Development Office by email at broadband@centrecountypa.gov or through written correspondence to 420 Holmes St., Bellefonte, PA 16823 Attn: Planning
