  • Rural Internet Performance Testing

    Rural Internet Performance Testing

    Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) is continuing to partner with the Canadian Internet Registration Agency (CIRA) on an Internet Performance Test to measure internet speeds in rural Alberta. For the testing numbers to accurately depict actual rural internet speeds, RMA needs help from members and rural Albertans, as many tests are required.

    Running a test is easy. To test your internet speed, please visit RMA's CIRA Internet Performance Test page.

    The internet speed test will allow RMA to demonstrate the current state of broadband in rural Alberta and use this information to drive advocacy for federal funding and policy changes aimed at improving connectivity in rural areas.

    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. The internet speed test will allow RMA to demonstrate the current state of broadband in rural Alberta and use this information to drive advocacy for federal funding.

    As part of the “Red Tape Reduction” initiative, the County is proposing the redesignation of Direct Control District #2 lands In the Highway 2A industrial corridor to an existing land use district in the current Land Use Bylaw, in accordance with the Highway 2A Industrial Area Structure Plan.
