Testing The Speed Of Rural Broadband For Yourself


How slow is the mobile broadband in rural areas?  Well, people who live there (or are just visiting) can now test for themselves. 

The Rural Community Assistance Partnership, a proponent of speeding up rural broadband service, teamed up with several other organizations.  Together, they developed a smartphone app that can test the speed of broadband. 

The idea is to point out areas where network speeds are low, to make the case that speeding them up provides economic opportunities and jobs.  Nathan Ohle of RCAP talks about the app and the vision.
