While Killeen officials would like to see faster internet speeds in the city, they say some improvements have already happened. According to Broadband Now, a national broadband internet rating system, during the past year Killeen rose from 722nd to the 624th most connected city in Texas ahead of Fort Hood and Copperas Cove, but behind Belton, Nolanville and Harker Heights.

A privately funded initiative to improve the economic infrastructure of Killeen revamped the local internet system allowing for faster speeds for businesses and many residents.

In one year, improvements made possible by the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce’s 14 Forward campaign have elevated Killeen’s download speed to 624th from 722nd place, according to Bandwidth Now, a national bandwidth Internet rating system.
