Ellis County seeks input from residents on local broadband engagement
Ellis County, Texas (August 30, 2022) – The Ellis County Broadband Committee, along with Connected Nation Texas (CN Texas), is asking residents, business owners, ranchers, agriculture producers, first responders, community institutions, and health care officials to participate in a 10-minute survey designed to assess internet needs and usage throughout the community. Respondents are asked to select the survey category or categories that best represents them or their organization.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to share their feedback beginning August 30. Access the survey by visiting: https://www.connectednation.org/ellis-county-texas.
“Connected Nation Texas is thrilled to be working with the Ellis County Broadband Committee,” said Sierra Sees, Broadband Solutions Manager for CN Texas. “The more data we capture from this short survey about local high-speed internet needs and usage, the better we can help the community. Please help us spread the word.”
Survey data will be used to develop a technology action plan tailored to the county’s unique broadband needs. The plan will leverage community resources and identify solutions for improving internet connectivity for families, businesses, and community organizations.
The Ellis County engagement is generously funded by the Meadows Foundation, headquartered in Dallas. The Meadows Foundation is “on a mission to improve the quality and circumstances of life for the people of Texas now and in the future.”
