 WSU Stevens County Broadband Survey: Many rural parts of Stevens County and the Spokane Indian Reservation do not have adequate internet service and data about internet availability is not accurate. The survey does not guarantee new internet service. It is being used to gather internet access data. Results may assist in determining actual service availability. Results may also provide information to show potential future funders and internet service providers that there is a need for access to affordable internet. 
Access to the internet is important for education, health care, business, public safety and much more. There are limited Internet access options in the region. The Stevens County/Spokane Tribe Broadband Action Team (BAT) wants to help! The survey is designed to determine what Internet services are available in the community, home internet availability, how it is used, and the barriers to obtaining adequate service.

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and all responses will remain confidential. Candid answers will provide valuable information to the BAT, led by Washington State University Extension. They hope to use the information to improve Internet access in the region. The speed test at the beginning of the survey will help accurately map the region’s broadband more accurately and provide specific data about current service.

Visit the web site: “https://tinyurl.com/WSUBroadbandSurveyStevens” to participate in a county-wide survey to help uncover internet service (broadband) needs in Stevens County and on the Spokane Reservation. The survey is designed to determine what internet services are available in your community, whether you have internet in your home, how you use it, and the barriers to obtaining adequate service in your community.

For More information contact: Debra Hansen, WSU Extension, (509) 684-2588
