CIRA Internet Performance Test
Highspeed rural internet is critical for economic development, engaging in the digital economy, and working and learning from home. The Government of Canada has announced the goal of providing access to 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload speeds to all Canadians by 2030. RMA, in partnership with CIRA, is conducting internet speed testing.
Before you run a speed test, please review the internet speed testing protocol:
To run the test, simply click the orange ‘Start’ button on the speed test page. If you require more information on how to run the test, read the quick start guide.
After running your test, your results will be displayed at the top of the window. Results from RMA’s office are shared here as an example.
Moving from left to right:
Your data will be shared with Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED). Additionally, RMA staff will have access to the data. This information will be used to demonstrate internet speeds to ISED, identify gaps in service, and inform RMA advocacy. For more information on how your data will be used, visit the CIRA website.
RMA is pleased to partner with the Canadian Internet Registration Agency (CIRA) to provide this speed testing.
If you have any questions about this test, the CIRA partnership, or rural internet, please contact Warren Noga, RMA Policy Advisor.
