Broadband Survey – Help strengthen case for more investment

THIS IS AN APPEAL to HU12 Online readers to take part in – and spread the word about – the East Riding Broadband Survey that is being conducted by the East Riding Council.

The survey is an opportunity to record the demand for better broadband in the East Riding, and the findings will be important to help strengthen the case for attracting more investment into broadband.

The survey includes a broadband speed test (Click BEGIN TEST) which will also help to clearly pinpoint the best and worst performing areas for broadband across the East Riding.

It might be useful if, when asked to record your upload and download speeds – that you also include these figures as a comment on HU12 Online. It would reveal a ‘straw-poll’ guide to speeds across the Holderness area.

Note: after you have completed the speed test, just close the page down and you will return to the survey. Be careful not to click any of the ‘offers’ available on that page (unless you wish to).

For comparison, at 11.40am today the we recorded a download speed of 16.33 mbps and an upload speed of 0.86 mbps in Hedon. How does this compare with other areas of the Holderness area?

We are encouraging as many local businesses and residents as possible to complete the broadband survey – it only takes about five minutes.

There are separate surveys for businesses and for residents at the web link below.

Please share this article on Facebook, Twitter and by e-mail and help circulate the survey link to a wider audience.
