Jefferson County residents and business owners are encouraged to help improve internet service in the county by participating in a broadband survey by Sept. 15.

By participating in the survey, residents and business owners will be providing valuable information that will aid in determining how to connect homes, schools, government agencies, and businesses to the internet.

The survey, which can be completed in about five minutes, is available online and is being mailed to Jefferson County households and businesses.

Two separate surveys have been developed, one for households and one for businesses.

Access the surveys at these website links:

The Jefferson County Commission received a $75,000 grant to conduct a broadband feasibility and planning study. As part of the study, a broadband survey is now underway. The goal of the survey is to assess the county’s current broadband service, identify areas of need, and develop strategies to bring high-performance internet to more homes and businesses.

The feasibility study underway will include technical and market analyses, assessment of current use, broadband development strategies, and preliminary design and cost estimates.

For more information or to ask questions, email jcbroadbandsurvey@jeffersoncountywv.org or call 304-728-3284.
