Why is high-speed
High-speed internet is no longer a luxury.
Digital connectivity is an integral part of everyday life. In many ways it has become a necessity for full community participation, employment, lifelong learning and access to essential services.
The Utah Broadband Center (UBC) needs your help to make
high-speed internet available, accessible and affordable for every Utahn.
Did you know?
Over 15% of Utah households do not have internet subscriptions. (According to the 2021 American Communities Survey)
120,000 Utah households do not have a desktop or laptop computer. (According to the 2021 American Communities Survey)
Our goal is to change this and provide affordable access and resources to the digital world no matter your age, location, cultural background or financial situation.
Help Us Get All of Utah Online
Connecting Utah is developing a statewide Digital Connectivity Plan to guide high-speed internet expansion and deployment across the state — and we need your input.
There are ways to get involved today. Your input will help us achieve statewide digital opportunities.
Utah Internet Speed Test
Tell us about your internet connectivity at home, work, or wherever you connect to the internet. If you currently have internet access, take the 60-second Utah Internet Speed Test at speedtest.utah.gov to help us map internet speeds.
The speed test results will help identify areas that lack high-speed internet connections and direct dedicated federal funding towards providing high-speed internet access where it is needed most throughout the state.
Responses and data collected will be kept private and will not be sold or be made available to third parties.
If you don’t have access to the internet, please call our hotline at 435-264-8880 to let us know.
Share, share, share! We need to hear from you, your neighbors, your friends, your colleagues, your family, and everyone. Connecting Utah seeks to make high-speed internet connectivity available, accessible and affordable to all Utahns.
