City of Alma, Nebraska....A Great Place to Live!


The pandemic has exposed a digital divide between the urban and rural areas of our state. This digital divide is negatively impacting the ability of many Nebraska residents to access education, work, government services and conduct business from home. Are you and your neighbors frustrated with erratic or unpredictable internet service? Are you in a rural area where service is spotty or non-existent?

South Central Economic Development District has partnered with other Nebraska development districts in launching the NEBRASKA Broadband SPEED TEST in an effort to gather broadband data statewide. Data collected will be used to plan for broadband infrastructure expansion or enhancement projects.

Help us bridge the digital divide by sharing this messaging and conducting your own speed test here:

Interested in the Western Sky Subdivision check out a web page for a short description of the project and pictures as the project proceeds.


Alma is a city of progressive citizens, great schools, a stable economy, fresh air, clean water, safe neighborhoods, high-quality medical care, enthusiastic community spirit, and weather of all seasons.

Our city is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear.  We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business.
