SMARTnorthumberland

SMARTnorthumberland is a countywide project focusing on increasing the use of new technologies in County workplaces and the community to help foster an inclusive, prosperous and secure Northumberland.

Technological change is happening rapidly, and is changing the ways that we communicate, do business and live our lives. With a unique blend of urban and rural landscapes, Northumberland faces many challenges and opportunities relating to digital infrastructure. We are challenged not only to keep pace with these technological advancements, but to take an active role in shaping the application of technology for the benefit of our community. The mission of the SMARTnorthumberland project is to take advantage of information and technology in order to create inclusive prosperity, tackle social and governance challenges and enrich quality of life.

 

Take Northumberland County's internet speed test

Northumberland County is gathering data about the state of local internet access, as we continue to look for opportunities to improve local broadband. Help us get accurate internet speed data by taking the internet speed test linked below. 

This information can be used to:

  • Assist interested internet service providers as they plan deployments in Northumberland
  • Inform Northumberland County as we aim to address unserved or underserved areas

Please note that you will be asked to provide the following information:

  • A valid email address for follow-up purposes if confirmation of speed test results are required — under no circumstances will your email address be used for marketing or solicitation purposes
  • Your postal code and the civic number of your address to pinpoint the location of your service
  • The download and upload speeds as promised by your internet service provider, as well as the name of the service provider

Thank you for participating in this data gathering exercise.
