Hi-speed internet survey

Introduction

  • Government grant programs for the development of high-speed Internet networks require the Internet speeds available in your area to be documented.

  • For this purpose, we are compiling the results of three speed tests, at three different times:

- once between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- once between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
- once between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.

  • By participating in this test and completing this form, you hereby give express consent to allow the data that you provide, as well as all the information collected in connection with the speed tests, including the geolocated address of the place where the speed test was conducted, to be analyzed and subsequently shared with the regions/municipalities and the various service providers operating in this area.
