Alachua County encourages residents to participate in the Department of Economic Opportunity’s (DEO) internet speed test. Taking the test will help users know their internet speeds and assist with local governments’ understanding of what the local needs are regarding internet accessibility.
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 collaboration and ensure a high level of transparency, the Florida Broadband Availability Map will be continuously updated on their webpage. Please note that the map is incomplete and will continue to be updated as more data is added and changes in broadband availability are identified.
