Public Input Opportunity - Internet Survey and Speed Test

A public input opportunity regarding internet service is available and we strongly encourage your participation:

The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) has developed a survey, the Wisconsin Internet Self-Report (WISER), to gather information regarding your broadband experiences. WISER is an internet survey and speed test that will be used to advise Wisconsin's broadband planning efforts. Everyone is encouraged to take the survey and help the PSC create a better broadband map. You may take the survey multiple times to report on additional locations, connections, or to take an updated speed test. WISER will serve as a long-standing tool to track broadband service over time.
