Here are some great links to visit before the presentation:

  1. SC DIGITAL DRIVE - To get their local county maps, please visit www.scdigitaldrive.com and use the pre-release password REVD to enter the site.  Congressman Clyburn has agreed to host a launch event on June 23 at 11am and the password will be removed at that time. Over 200 SC broadband maps are available on the site including current versions for all 46 counties.  All maps are FREE and your attendees just place the map(s) they want into a shopping cart and checkout. It’s basically iTunes for broadband maps and this is the first broadband map store in the US! Upon checkout, a download link will be issued and each order results in the delivery of a high resolution PowerPoint slide which can be immediately used in a presentation.

 

  1. SPEEDTEST – To learn how to test the speed of your network, your attendees can download the free app “Speedtest by Ookla” (highly recommended) or visit www.speedtest.net. By pressing GO, a user sees their current Internet speed in about 30 seconds. This is extremely useful and strategically, every time a Speedtest is executed, our SC broadband maps get smarter! I’ll explain more about this in my presentation.
