Wright County reveals Broadband Survey results: 86 percent want better broadband

A big thanks to Wright County for livestreaming and archiving their recent broadband meeting – makes my job so easy.

Last night (Sept. 22), a public informational meeting was moderated by Jack Maytum of the consulting firm Design Nine, which was retained by Wright County earlier this year to conduct an extensive broadband survey. Among the survey results were that 86 percent of respondents are interested in faster and more reliable internet service, 41 percent were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with their current internet speeds and 44 percent saying that the availability of broadband internet affects where they choose to live.

Maytum presented the full results of the survey, which can be found here: Wright_County_Survey_Report_v02. The 90-minute meeting was also livestreamed and can be seen in its entirety here:
