What information is being collected?
We are ONLY collecting information on whether you have an Internet connection, the speed of that connection if you do, and your address. We do not ask for your name or contact information.
What about privacy?
Privacy is of the utmost importance to the campaign’s partners. No personally identifiable information will be stored beyond the address that you provide. Information will NOT be used for commercial or marketing purposes. Only campaign partners and decision-makers who sign a data-use agreement will have access to the household-level data.
Does the type of Internet service I use matter for the speed test?
No. Even if you’re connected via mobile hotspot, cable, or satellite Internet service like Starlink, please take the speed test. All of this information gives broadband leaders a better understanding of how and where Oregonians connect to the Internet.
If I don’t have an Internet connection, should I still respond?
Yes! Knowing what locations do not have an Internet connection is just as important.
