Washington state broadband access and speed survey

Access to the internet is an economic and health imperative in 2020. Yet many communities across the state do not have broadband access, severely limiting their ability to access telehealth, education, and economic programs.  Washington state is mapping broadband access to identify service gaps and work to ensure that all residents have access to reliable, high-speed broadband by 2024.

 You can help by taking a 1-minute access and speed survey.

In response to the impacts of COVID-19, drive-in WiFi hotspots provide free temporary, emergency internet access for Washingtonians who do not have broadband service to their homes. Click here to go to the WiFi hotspot location finder.
