Availability of high speed internet is a serious concern in many of our rural areas.

CVIOG is currently assisting the Georgia General Assembly’s Joint High-Speed Broadband Communications Access for all Georgians Study Committee by providing a web based survey tool for Georgians to report their access to broadband. This study committee, co-chaired by Senator Steve Gooch and Representative Don Parsons, is currently holding meetings throughout Georgia with the next one scheduled for Thursday in Glennville.  The information gathered in these meetings will be supplemented with this survey data. 

The goal is to get rural Georgians to visit the website http://broadband.georgia.gov/ to: 

1.       View what access is currently reported as available in their area;

2.       Perform a recorded speed test if they currently have broadband access; and, 

3.       Complete a brief survey about broadband availability at their home and/or business.

Our staff will analyze the collected data and produce maps to be posted on the Georgia Broadband Center website, which we host and developed in partnership with the Georgia Technology Authority a few years ago.  These maps and other information will be available to the study committee as it considers policy options as well as anyone who is interested in expanding broadband access in rural Georgia.

We will collect data through June of 2017 and provide final analysis at that time; however, we want to collect as much data as possible by December 1 so that the study committee will have it for their final deliberations prior to the General Assembly session.
