FRANKFORT, Ky (WEHT) Governor Andy Beshear says more than 61,000 people have completed the Kentucky Broadband Initiative’s Internet Speed Test.

This is a crowd-sourcing project that will gather data needed to expand internet access for distance learning, telework and telehealth.

People without Wi-Fi access in their home can visit their local library or other locations to submit the address of a home with no available service.

Beshear says you have until March 1 to do the free internet test. To complete the speed test, visit the Kentucky Broadband Initiative website.
