Broadband Internet access is becoming more and more important in the daily life of individuals and business operations. A group of Grinnell community leaders are hoping to improve access to reliable, high-speed broadband service through participation in the Connect Iowa Community Engagement program.
The first step is to gather information for a community assessment of our current access, adoption and use of broadband related services. An online survey has been created for this purpose at www.tinyurl.com/GrinnellBroadband
Before we can plan for broadband needs in the future, we first must have a thorough understanding of where we are today. By answering four questions, business and organization representatives can help with the assessment. Information will then be used to create a plan for the future.
