Help bring strong, reliable broadband to your community.
The test helps Kansas Office of Broadband Development (KOBD) understand the quality of broadband or internet service in your home compared to what you are currently paying for.
"Access to high-speed internet in today’s economy isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity" - Governor Laura Kelly
