The County has developed a survey tool that allows citizens to run an internet speed test and report that data to the County. For respondents who live within areas included in the VATI grant, this information will be included in the application. However, citizens who do not live in the grant areas are also invited to participate as it would provide additional information to the County and to internet service providers.
