About the Survey
Many homes in Fayette County don’t have reliable access to high-speed broadband internet. This survey and speed test will help us identify where investments need to be made to close those gaps.
Thank you for participating in the survey. The survey is now closed to submissions.
Why Your Participation is Important
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, home internet was viewed as a luxury, but we learned quickly that high-speed broadband is an essential utility, like water or electricity. In our modern communities, high-speed internet is the means by which we attend school, work from home, apply for jobs, receive healthcare and so much more.
Fayette County leaders recognize that the need for better broadband internet is here. Through the American Rescue Plan (ARP), the County has access to funds that can help address gaps in internet service for residents and businesses.
The first step to building a more connected Fayette County is identifying areas that have unserved or underserved broadband access. To that end, the County has partnered with Michael Baker International to develop survey and marketing materials. Your participation in this survey ensures all residents have Fast. → Fiber. → Fayette.
Now, more than ever, broadband internet access is a crucial service to those who live, work and learn in Fayette County.
