Local Technology Planning Team

Florida's Broadband Speed Test

What is the Local Technology Planning Team (LTPT)?
This is a team of people made up of staff from Levy County, non-profits, businesses, educational organizations, and private citizens. The LTPT provides letters of support for providers looking to expand their services within the County. 

Directives for Local Technology Planning Teams:
  • Work with rural communities to help the communities understand their current broadband availability;
  • Locate unserved and underserved businesses and residents;
  • Identify assets relevant to broadband deployment;
  • Build partnerships with broadband service providers;
  • Identify opportunities to leverage assets and reduce barriers to the deployment of broadband internet services in the community; and
  • Teams must be proactive in fiscally constrained counties in identifying funding opportunities and providing assistance with applying for federal grants for broadband internet service.
