Broadband Expansion and Accessibility of Mississippi (BEAM)

TRPDD is proud to be a partner with BEAM in the effort to bring the best possible internet service in terms of speed and reliability to our residents. By participating in the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program, TRPDD will be helping local governments test and validate the quality of existing internet service throughout our district. If we find a residential address that is underserved according to the BEAD speed test tool, we can help file a formal challenge on behalf of the local government and the residential address.

The process is very simple:

  1. Visit the following website – – and take the speed test. The results will indicate if you are Served or Underserved. A total of three tests on three different days that result in Underserved will be required for a challenge to be accepted.
  2. If a resident is Underserved, they can agree to be contacted by us for assistance with completing the tests and filing a formal challenge.

Test your internet speed here!

The process for residents is straightforward and easy but they must work with a local government or TRPDD to file a form challenge to their service. If you would like to know more about the BEAM initiative visit the BEAM website at:
