Take Our Broadband Survey

The City has developed two surveys – one for residents and another for businesses. The purpose of the surveys is to determine the level of service you currently have at your home or business, how you use the Internet, and what is most important to you in regard to high-speed Internet service. The survey will take no more than nine minutes to complete and the responses are completely confidential. Your contact and address information will not be shared.
