Jackson County residents asked to share their internet needs for countywide plan to improve broadband access, speeds
Jackson County, Okla. (October 19, 2023) – The Jackson County Broadband Committee is asking local residents if they have access to an internet connection, whether it’s affordable, and just how good – or bad – that service is.
The committee, working in partnership with Connected Nation (CN), will use residents’ input to develop a Technology Action Plan that addresses the unique broadband (high-speed internet) needs of Jackson County.
“Residents who take part in these surveys will help shape how the Technology Action Plan is written and provide guidance on areas that need better and more affordable internet connections,” said Molly Weiner, Director, Local & Regional Planning, CN. “Essentially, it’s critical for as many households as possible to provide input because that information will inform how Jackson County tackles the issue of connectivity and digital equity across the area. Don’t be left out.”
The residential survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and can be found here: https://bit.ly/JacksonCoOklaSurveys.
A national nonprofit dedicated to expanding opportunities related to broadband, CN has helped develop Technology Action Plans for more than 650 communities across the United States.
