Statewide broadband survey

 Posted on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 7:59 am

The statewide MoBroadbandNow project, administered locally by the Boonslick Regional Planning Commission in Warrenton, is conducting a survey of broadband access, adoption and usage across the state. Surveys were mailed to 52,915 randomly selected households in all 114 counties and the city of St. Louis.

A total of 1,402 surveys were sent to addresses in the Boonslick Regional Planning area, which includes Warren, Lincoln and Montgomery Counties.

The Survey questionnaire will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Responders to the survey will remain anonymous and responses will only be reported as part of a larger group. Individuals age 18 or older are asked to complete the survey and return it by Friday, May 10.

Data collection is a central component of the MoBroadbandNow effort and your responses will help us create an accurate picture of Internet and broadband access, adoption and us in Missouri. This survey is designed to measure broadband progress that has taken place since the first residential survey was completed in May of 2011.

In addition, questions have been added to address healthcare access utilizing broadband capability. Reports from the 2011 residential survey can be found on the MoBroadbandNow website; http://mobroadbandnow.com/initiatives/broadband-reports/. Questions about the survey should be submitted via e-mail to mobroadbandnow@oa.mo.gov.
