Montgomery County leaders seek public feedback on broadband expansion plan

The Montgomery County Commission and the City of Montgomery are conducting a countywide broadband survey to assess current broadband service and community needs. The goal is to develop a comprehensive set of strategies to bring high performance broadband and Internet services to all local residents and businesses.

Residents will have an opportunity to share their feedback on Monday, June 12 at two broadband public meetings. Click here for more detail about those meetings.

County Commission Chairman Doug Singleton recently discussed the County and City’s broadband expansion plans¬†with WSFA. Local residents and businesses should expect to receive a survey via U.S. Mail seeking their feedback on broadband accessibility throughout the county. Over 90,000 surveys are slated to hit local mailboxes within the next two weeks.

The surveys can be completed and returned by mail or via the following online survey links:

Local participation in the survey is critical to helping local leaders understand how to connect every home, school, doctor’s office, business, and government agency to a high-speed network for the community. The results will help county and city leaders determine where the need is greatest and help guide them on how to ensure that all citizens and businesses have affordable and adequate access to broadband services.
