I want to encourage readers to check out a new website called BroadbandCensus.com . The wiki at this site tries to get at questions about the broadband user experience that telephone surveys can’t always do well. What networks speeds are people surfing at? What speeds are they promised by their providers? How many providers are available where they live?

BroadbandCensus.com leverages the power of users to provide detailed information about the high-speed pipe coming into their home. The Pew Internet Project has entered into a partnership with BroadbandCensus to use some of the data collected at the wiki for our 2008 broadband adoption report.
