Area residents are welcome to participate in a survey that will help shape the state of Illinois’ future broadband (high-speed Internet) plan, a plan expected to help create jobs and improve medical care and educational opportunities. The statewide survey is being conducted by Broadband Illinois, also known as the Partnership for a Connected Illinois (PCI).
Through this survey outreach to households, anchor institutions such as colleges and hospitals, and community organizations across the state, Broadband Illinois will develop broadband plans in agriculture, energy and the environment, economic development, education, health care, and other sectors.
The survey was opened to the public on February 15 with assistance from statewide broadband stakeholders; it is accessible through the Broadband Illinois website at www.broadbandillinois.org . Click the “Research” tab, and then click the “Broadband Availability Survey” link. Or, paste this URL in your search bar: http://broadbandillinois.org/Illinois-Broadband-Availability-Study.html.
