About the Broadband Speed Reporting Tool
North Carolina will be better able to identify and address places that lack reliable internet service using a new tool launched today by the North Carolina Department of Information Technology's (DIT) Broadband Infrastructure Office. People will be able to use the new interactive mapping tool to report whether they have internet access at their home or business and determine the speeds received at their address.

The data provided by North Carolinians will be used to populate a map that will show the speed of internet services that households and businesses receive at locations across the state. This information is then used to report coverage data to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
