The Albemarle Regional Commission wants you to take a five minute Broadband Survey to help them better understand current availability of broadband in our region and gauge demand for additional services.
The Albemarle Commission is one of the sixteen regional councils of government for North Carolina and represents 10 of NC’s northeastern-most counties including Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington.
The survey was built to verify availability of current broadband services in these counties, to identify actual speeds available through a speed test, and collect information on demand for services from residents and businesses. Demand assessment and aggregation is critical for enticing broadband providers to invest in additional services for an area.
They are asking for input from both residential and business locations.
Initial data collected in this survey will provide valuable information to the Albemarle Commission and its state and local partners working towards broadband and economic development planning for the region.
