Participate in TSLAC’s Texas Public Library Speed Test

Check out this post from the Texas State Library & Archives on participating in the Texas Public Library Speed Test. Sounds easy to participate! Please help them gather this data.

For just a couple more weeks, the Texas Public Library Speed Test will remain up and running – and NOW is your chance to conduct this quick, easy test and have your library’s voice represented in this state-wide snapshot of the amount of Internet speed available to patrons in public libraries.

So far we’ve received results from about two-thirds of main libraries and we’d love to get the remaining third in the state!

Want to participate but don’t have the invitation or link?    Email TSLAC for the invitation!

The automated process takes less than 2 minutes and can be done via any browser on one of the library’s public access computers.

So far we’ve received a range of speeds:  from 462 kilobytes downloaded per second all the way to above 1 gigabit downloaded per second.

As it stands now, about half of libraries serving populations below 25K have reported download speeds of 10 Mbps and below.
Here’s how it currently breaks down:

Below 25K: 48% report 10 Mbps or below
25K to 99K: 19% report 10 Mbps or below
100K and above: 10% report 10 Mbps or below

What’s your Internet speed and how do you fit in to this? Take the test and join in!

A big Thank You! to the following libraries who’ve taken the Speed Test and had their results transmitted to us for this important project!
