Governor promotes broadband initiative

From the Office of Gov. Neil Abercrombie:

Aloha friends,

My Administration is working hard to ensure that the State of Hawaii will be at the forefront of high-speed technology. Please take a minute to view this special message about the Hawaii Broadband Initiative and how your state government is examining ways to enhance our statewide broadband network by closing gaps in service, ultimately improving connectivity throughout the Aloha State.

Help give the people of Hawaii a competitive edge by participating in the Hawaii Speed Test, visit

Warmest Regards,
Gov. Neil Abercrombie


Aloha. This is Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

For a state as isolated as our own, high-speed Internet can be transformative.

It connects families, businesses and institutions – between the islands and with the rest of the world. It spurs economic development, fosters innovation, and gives current and future generations a competitive edge. That’s why my Administration has launched the Hawaii Broadband Initiative, to provide universal access to affordable, ultra high-speed Internet by 2018.

Leveraging federal funds, our goal is to establish a statewide connection of one gigabit per second. That’s two hundred times faster than today’s typical household connection.

But we need your help. Visit HawaiiSpeedTest dot net to measure the current network in your area. Take the test often, at different times of day, and from multiple computers and mobile devices.
Data from across the state will help our broadband specialists map out Hawaii’s overall network coverage.

So please visit hawaiispeedtest dot net. Mahalo.
