Community Broadband Action

The first step in improving internet access in Northern Ontario.


What can you do to help?

Our governments want everyone to have fast internet. They have established targets of 50Mbps down and 10Mbps up. Soon, we will see funding programs to help Internet Service Providers build networks to supply this service.

In order to be ready to apply for funding opportunities, Blue Sky Net, a non-profit organization, is looking to capture data that will support applications for these funding programs.

One way to help is by taking speed tests and completing surveys. Note* No personal information is shared. No information is shared with third parties, marketers, or consultants.

Click below and share your Broadband experience! Every completed survey and speed test run helps. Feel free to share this page with your friends, neighbours and colleagues– with your support we can build a community-focused case for better broadband in our region.

We encourage you to learn more about the project and to contact us if you have any questions.



To initiate the test, we ask you to give us the street address from where you are running the test as well as the type of connection you have to the internet (to learn more about connection types, you can visit our learn page).

This is important to accurately identify network performances in your neighbourhood. If you’re using a tablet or smartphone with a cellular data plan, please ensure (when possible) you have enabled wi-fi to run the test. The speed test is located at the bottom of the homepage

Please feel free to take the test several times, it would help us if you took the test at different times of the day, too!



While you’re at, we’d like you to take our Internet access survey to get your opinions on a variety of subjects about internet usage and access in Northern Ontario.

This will also help build the case for service improvements for your area. Like the speed test, no personal information will be shared outside this project!
