Lapeer County Broadband Survey

Here are a few facts regarding the survey and why it is being done.

WHO is involved?

The Lapeer County Broadband Committee is comprised of community leaders from various sectors with a common mission of enhancing and expanding broadband access, adoption and use throughout the county for the benefit of local residents and businesses.  To that end, the Committee has partnered with Connected Nation Michigan and their “Connected Community” program to assess the present state of broadband in Lapeer County and establish a broadband planning process and action plan to address our current and future broadband needs.

WHAT is being done? 

To perform an assessment of Lapeer County’s current broadband environment, the Committee will be conducting surveys of local residents, businesses and other organizations across the county.  Responses to these surveys will help us better understand the existing resources and capabilities we now have to support the access, adoption and use of broadband technology in our homes and businesses.  After a structured evaluation of this assessment, we’ll then develop appropriate action plans and projects to improve our broadband environment most effectively.

WHEN will this take place? 

Our Community Broadband Assessment and related surveys will be launched in October and continue into the early December timeframe.  Results from this survey work will be shared with the Committee at that time, followed by additional work to develop a county-wide Action Plan to address identified areas of need.
