Residents' help needed for better internet
Friday, March 13, 2020
A non-profit group helping Anderson County improve its broadband internet service said Thursday it will need residents to complete up to 1,600 surveys to make it happen.
Connected Nation plans to perform a broadband mapping and data analysis between March and June to determine ways to improve and expand broadband service in Anderson County.
“What we're eventually looking forward to is better service at a lower cost,” Mayor Steve Presley said.
Connected Nation spokesman Tom Stephenson urged the community to get involved by providing information – positive and negative – about their internet service through online surveys. The company seeks to identify barriers to reliable service, including obstructed signals, poorly installed cables, and remote access.
