The Massachusetts Broadband Institute (MBI)
is participating in a federal grant program to map broadband information for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Healthcare facilities are considered important community anchor institutions that will be included on the state and national broadband maps. As part of the grant program, the MBI is required to collect a snapshot of the broadband services currently used at healthcare facilities throughout the state.
This survey should be completed by a person knowledgeable about the facility's Internet connections.
If you are a health care system, you will need to complete individual surveys for each facility. Information needed to complete this survey includes:
You may enter information for up to 4 separate Internet connections per facility.
- Facility name, ID and street address,
- Internet provider name,
- Type of Internet technology (e.g., DSL, cable or fiber),
- Maximum advertised download and upload speeds,
- Average monthly cost per connection (optional),
- If the connections are subsidized by government (optional), and
- A point of contact for this survey.
It is preferred that you have access to computers using these Internet connections while taking the survey, or to perform speed tests from these computers in advance. Go to http://speakeasy.net/speedtest
and click on any location name to take a speed test. If desired, speed tests may be taken multiple times to calculate an average speed.
