The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s ( DEO ) Office of Broadband works with local and state government agencies , community organizations , and private businesses to increase the availability and effectiveness of broadband internet throughout the state , specifically in small and rural communities . Through these partnerships , the Office of Broadband encourages investment in grant funding opportunities for the broadband program that focuses on expanding broadband .
Florida’s Broadband Availability Map and Internet Speed Test
The DEO has developed Florida’s Broadband Availability Map to identify broadband internet service availability throughout the state . The Broadband Availability Map identifies a location’s speed , connectivity , and access to broadband services . These insights allow the state of Florida to better identify and reach unserved and underserved areas of the state . The map will be an asset to local communities and internet service providers to assist with broadband planning efforts .
As part of DEO’s efforts to encourage public participation and collaboration and ensure a high level of transparency , the Florida Broadband Availability Map will be continuously updated at
speedtestmap ( expressoptimizer . net )
. The map is not complete and will continue to be updated as more data is added and changes in broadband availability are identified .
Gadsden County residents and businesses have an opportunity to participate in the mapping effort by conducting a simple speed test that can be completed on any device at a home or business with an internet connection by going to
www . FloridaJobs . org/Broadband
and clicking on the “Take The Test . ”
