Brown County Launches Broadband Speed Test Initiative

Posted on 1-14-2021

Brown County has launched a new website:  in order to help everyone in our community test their internet speed.

The purpose is to enhance the county’s request for federal funding and investment in order to improve broadband internet infrastructure and web capabilities in areas like education, business, health care, and overall quality of life. With the COVID-19 pandemic, parents, students, teachers, small business owners, and community leaders have faced challenges when trying to connect with each other.

Ask family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors to go to this website and make their actual internet speed known to Brown County. This will help Brown County and other groups apply for funding when grant opportunities open.

If you have questions, you may contact Troy Streckenbach, Brown County Executive, directly at 448-4001.
