Broadband Survey Now Available

In an effort to determine how high-speed broadband Internet access might be extended to underserved parts of the County, a Broadband Task Force was established in October 2013. Among the action items identified by the Broadband Task Force is the need to identify and analyze demand. To that end, a survey has been created for citizens to weigh-in on their broadband desires. It is critical that all county residents and business owners, particularly those in rural areas, participate in the survey in order to establish important baseline data. 

The survey is available on-line at For citizens with limited access to the Internet, a physical copy of this survey will be distributed at various locations around the County. More details about where to find the physical copy of the survey and how to get it back in the appropriate hands upon completion will be shared in the coming weeks. Additionally, citizens may check the speed of their current Internet connection by clicking here.

The Task Force will be collecting and analyzing survey responses through June 2014. A findings report with next steps will be published in July 2014.

The Broadband Task Force includes representatives from the County (general government and Schools), service providers, Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission, the University of Virginia, as well as several County residents. For more information about the Broadband Task Force, clicking here.
