Local community participation needed in Childress County survey about internet connectivity
Childress County, Texas (January 24, 2022) – The Childress County Broadband Committee needs to hear from you! Childress County residents, business owners, ranchers, ag-producers, first responders, and local officials are invited to participate in a 10-minute survey designed to assess internet needs and uses throughout the county. You can answer in as many categories as apply to you. Survey data will contribute to a community action plan tailored to the unique connectivity needs of the county. The plan will focus on finding solutions for improving internet connectivity countywide.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the brief survey before the end of January by visiting this link: https://myconnectedcommunity.org/childress-county/.
“Better internet connectivity means better opportunities for Childress County residents, and good data is the first step,” said Broadband Solutions Manager Catherine Krantz. “We have extended the deadline of the survey until the end of January, and we hope everyone will take a few minutes to fill it out.”
The project is funded by the Priddy Foundation and completed in partnership with Connected Nation Texas (CN Texas). The program leverages CN Texas’ Connected Community Engagement Program, also referred to as Connected. The program has been used in more than 650 communities. It analyzes data collected from local residents, businesses and other stakeholders to develop community-specific Technology Action Plans.
