Internet Service Task Force
The Internet Service Task Force was established by Council resolution on February 12, 2019. The purpose of the task force is to study the current level of Internet service in Mono, particularly in the rural areas. The task force will examine the availability, quality and cost of service currently available in Mono.
Once constituted, the task force will prepare full terms of reference for Council's approval including a budget. The terms of reference will also set out anticipated timelines for completion of the task force's work.
Test your Internet Connection
One way you can participate in our work is to measure your internet performance. A tool was developed for the County of Dufferin by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority - CIRA to specifically measure Internet speeds and performance throughout the county. It can pinpoint your address, identify your provider, internet speed and performance. It does not reveal your identity but will generate invaluable information about Internet service in Mono.
As this tool has been online for a while, we already have over 840 results from Mono but we need many more.
Here is how to use CIRA’s Internet Performance Test:
- For best results,connect your computer directly to your Internet provider’s router
- Use Chrome as your browser if you have it
- Go to Dufferin County's Internet Performance Test page
- You will get a prompt to 'use your current location' or 'performance.cira.ca wants to know your location' say yes/allow
- Enter your postal code and use the moveable orange pointer to fine-tune your exact location
- Hit the start button and wait for the results
