Do you have a business in Klickitat or Skamania counties? Then take the Business Broadband Access Survey: Do you live in Klickitat or Skamania counties? Take the Resident Broadband Access Survey: Interested in finding out how fast your internet really is? Use this link to take a speed test. It will also help the LTPT document service gaps in our communities. wabroadbandmapping.org/speedtest.aspx Questions? Contact Brian Wanless (CEKC) or Linda Williams (WSUE)

2 Definitions Advanced communications systems capable of providing high speed transmission of services such as data, voice & video over the Internet. Transmission is provided by a wide range of technologies, including digital subscriber line (DSL), fiber optic cable, coaxial cable, wireless & satellite. Broadband Speeds 10 MPH 25 MPH 80 MPH 500 MPH 5,000 MPH 200 kbps 768 kbps 1.5 mbps 10 mbps 100 mbps 3 hour movie download speeds 12.5 hrs 3.25 hrs 1.6 hrs 15 min 1.5 min Reality Checkpoint Klickitat County 2011 Annual Report on Broadband in Washington (WSBO, January 2012) Over 16.9% of Klickitat County households are unserved Fixed Broadband Deployment Map (FCC, August 2012) Klickitat County Access: Fiber 0% Cable 35% DSL 59% Fixed Wireless 1%

6 BROADBAND 101 The Unofficial Dictionary Broadband: broadband comes from the words broad bandwidth and is used to describe a high-speed connection to the Internet. A broadband connection lets you instantly connect to the Internet or your corporate network at speeds many times faster than a dial-up connection. Bandwidth: bandwidth refers to how fast data flows through the path that it travels to your computer; it s usually measured in kilobits, megabits or gigabits per second. DSL: stands for digital subscriber line; it refers to the type of broadband connection that brings information to homes and businesses over ordinary copper telephone lines. Cable modem: refers to the type of broadband connection that brings information to homes and businesses over ordinary television cable lines. Satellite: refers to the type of broadband connection where information is sent from and arrives at a computer through satellite dishes. Wireless: refers to the type of broadband connection where information is sent from and arrives at a computer through transmission towers. Fiber-Optic: refers to the newest broadband service, which is the fastest Internet connection thus far. However, this type of Internet service is still in its infancy as its service areas are quite limited. Downstream speed: refers to the speed at which data flows from the information server to your computer. Upstream speed: refers to the speed at which data flows from your computer to the information server. Kbps: Stands for Kilobits per second, or thousands of bits per second. For example, most analog modems transmit at 56 Kbps or 28.8 Kbps. Mbps: Stands for Megabits per second, or millions of bits per second. This is a measurement of how much data can be transmitted through a connection. For example, 6.0 Mbps is 200 times faster than a 28.8 Kbps analog modem
