Citizens, Community, IT|

MONCKS CORNER, S.C.- (Friday, August 23) Berkeley County Government encourages residents to download the TestIT app. The application can be used to run tests throughout the County. The information will also be utilized to obtain funding for different communication projects in the County.

TestIT is an iOS/Android mobile app that leverages a broadband sampling tool designed by Measurement Lab (MLab) to aggregate broadband speeds across the Country from app users. This will help document areas, often rural areas, that do not have adequate signal for cell phone use.

This app will allow citizens to test their broadband speed from anywhere.  Additionally, users will be able to compare their internet speeds to the national average and minimum standards established by the Federal Communications System. No personal information will be collected through this mobile app.

NACo has partnered with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP), the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) and Farm Credit to develop a mobile app designed to identify areas with low or no connectivity to help ensure adequate funding for broadband infrastructure is provided across the country.
