EAST FERRIS, IT’S YOUR TURN TO HAVE A SAY ABOUT INTERNET
HELP TELL THE STORY OF INTERNET IN EAST FERRIS
Blue Sky Economic Growth Corporation (Blue Sky Net) is partnering with the Municipality of East Ferris to measure your internet speeds. You can help inform decision-makers and funders by sharing your internet speed information.
By taking the Internet Performance Test and the Internet Access Survey, you can help decision-makers understand what internet is like for the Municipality of East Ferris from the very people who live there.
Why Take The Speed Test?
Our governments want everyone to have good internet. They have established targets of 50Mbps down and 10Mbps up. In July 2021 it was announced that East Ferris would receive the benefit of Bell receiving a subsidy from both the Federal and Provincial governments. It is still not here. Knowing what speeds citizens currently have available will be helpful to inform government funders of what we still experience in East Ferris.
Connectednorth.ca has partnered with CIRA’s Internet Performance Test, to collect the most detailed information relating to Northern Ontario’s internet speeds.
When you complete surveys and speed tests, it provides valuable data about the state of broadband in Northern Ontario from the very people who live and work here and you are helping to support applications to funding agencies.
When You Take The Speed Test…
When taking the speed test using the Internet Performance Test, it will help in the assessment of the Municipality of East Ferris’ internet landscape in knowing more about the type of service you receive. Make certain that you answer the package questions in full if you can. Most importantly, please add your connection type (if you know it).
Your privacy is important to us. Information from the speed tests is never sold or used outside of research for broadband development.
