Residents of Watauga County are invited, and encouraged, to take part in the Watauga Broadband Initiative Survey. The survey will help identify areas in Watauga County where broadband service is limited or lacking altogether. The county is wishing to identify businesses and residences that are unserved or underserved by current broadband Internet service.
The survey is available at this link and the deadline date is Friday March 10, 2017.
Information from the survey will be used to:
Assess the community's broadband needs.
Identify unserved or underserved businesses and residences.
Create a map of potential demand and service assets that will be used to attract service providers offering expanded services and higher speed options.
Address information is essential to the survey, but will only be used to locate and map pockets of demand for increased service options. If you are unable to access the internet, broadband services are available for free at the following locations:
Watauga County Public Library – 140 Queen Street, Boone NC 28607
Belk Library at Appalachian State University – 218 College Street, Boone, NC 28608
Paper copies of the survey are also available at the Watauga County Manager’s Office, 814 West King Street, Boone, NC 28607.
