State launches website to test Internet connection speeds

Hawaii is launching a new website that will allow users to test their own Internet connection speeds as well as help the state identify and close gaps in broadband Internet service.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s office said Tuesday data collected from the project at will give the state an estimate of current Internet connection speeds around the islands.

The administration last year announced a plan to make Hawaii’s Internet connections 200 times faster over the next seven years. 

The plan aims to ensure Hawaii has world class broadband service at affordable prices, and that even the most remote areas have equitable access.

The administration also hopes to promote a system of regulations and permits that supports investment in broadband infrastructure.
