The Broadband Census

299972023_e54925a1b8_m.jpgThe PEW Internet project is supporting the Broadband Census, a project that is being overseen by Drew Clark, a telecommunications and technology journalist. The point is to gather as much information about peoples actual upload and download speeds. From home or work.

The census is open to anyone who wants to participate. So get to IT.

According to the government, San Francisco has 10 service providers. Not sure if that’s truly the case, as I can only think of two, Comcast and AT&T, with very different offerings.

Participate in the census so we can truly see how we stack up to other cities and communities in the U.S.

    I went to Broadband Census, put in my SJ zip and it came back with 11 providers according to the government and 1 provider according to Broadband Census, Time Warner Cable. I’m sure that Time Warner didn’t buy Comcast today. The two choices that I know of here are Comcast and AT&T.
