Attorney General wants your Internet speed data

Posted at 7:42 AM, Dec 14, 2015

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman wants to make sure you're getting the internet speeds you pay for. His office launched an online form where state residents can test and submit their results they are receiving at home.

“New Yorkers should get the Internet speeds they pay for. Too many of us may be paying for one thing, and getting another,” Attorney General Schneiderman said. “By conducting these tests, consumers can uncover whether they are receiving the Internet speeds they have paid for.”

Take the test at the Attorney General's website

Consumers can screenshot their test results and send them to the to the AG's office. The Attorney General may use the information from submitted complaints in future legal proceedings.

The test is hosted by Free Press, an independent, non-partisan organization that says they fight to save the free and open Internet, curb runaway media consolidation, protect press freedom, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media.
