DCCA News Release: 2019 Report of Fixed Wireline Broadband Speeds in Hawaii Released

Posted on Aug 26, 2019 in Latest News

HONOLULU – The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) Cable Television Division (CATV) has issued its 2019 Report on Fixed Wireline Broadband Speeds, which builds upon data included in the 2018 Report on Fixed Wireline Broadband Speeds released in June of 2018.  Both reports are based upon an analysis of Hawaii data obtained from consumer-initiated wireline speed tests taken using Speedtest.

For the state overall, data from June 2018 to June 2019 shows an increase in mean download speeds from approximately 129 Megabits per second (Mbps) to 152 Mbps, and an increase in median download speeds from approximately 78 Mbps to 92 Mbps.  The report also includes speed data by county and by smaller geographical areas throughout the state for which data is available.

“We have continued to look at ways to better provide access to unserved and underserved communities across Hawaii,” said DCCA Director Catherine Awakuni Colón. “By evaluating the speed of existing internet services offered, we hope to provide stakeholders and the public with useful insights as we work together to advance broadband access.”

The 2019 and 2018 reports and other publicly available broadband deployment data may be accessed on the CATV Broadband web page at:  http://cca.hawaii.gov/broadband/.
