Collect Connectivity Data Throughout October
All through October, anyone on a school network can take a free SchoolSpeedTest and add data to the national inventory. To get the best data snapshot, school staff should take the test ten to twenty times during October, at different times of the day.
Internet speed will vary with the size of the wire or optical fiber that connects the school to the Internet service provider, how the network hardware distributes the data in school and the number of simultaneous users. Typically, the SchoolSpeedTest identifies many schools that need better, faster network infrastructure for educational activities enriched by online content and applications.

District, Regional and National Reports
EducationalSuperHighway will analyze the data and create a report for each participating district that shows available bandwidth during school hours. Schools and districts could find the reports useful as they plan for network upgrades and technology acquisition. EducationSuperHighway will use the data to make the case to increase the reach of high-speed broadband and policy reform at the national level.
If you have questions about the SchoolSpeedTest, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (360) 725-6384. The agency TTY number is (360) 664-3631.
