FLOYD, N.Y. – Congressman Anthony Brindisi continues his fight for better broadband service in rural areas around his district.

Brindisi’s office has released a Broadband Access Survey, which allows residents to test connection speeds and answer questions about their internet service. His approach to the issue also includes reporting accurate broadband maps to the FCC.

“When we have the data we need, we're going to show the FCC that customers in our rural communities are not getting what they need or what they pay for. Using your data and your stories, we can help fix the broadband maps and help bring reliable internet to our district,” said Brindisi.

The FCC uses census tracks to determine if an area has broadband service, and considers an area served if at least one in 1,000 homes has working internet service.
