The Elmore County Economic Development Authority (ECEDA) is asking citizens to complete a survey to gather accurate broadband information. Residents and business owner in Elmore County are encouraged to go to http://elmoreeda.com/connect/ to complete a short survey and speed test.
Existing FCC coverage maps for Elmore County have proven to contain inaccurate data. Often these maps depict broadband infrastructure and coverage in areas thathave no coverage whatsoever. This creates a challenge for these areas to compete for funds to provide investment in broadband infrastructure.
“ECEDA is partnering with Sain Engineering to provide an accurate picture of the broadband needs in Elmore County. The information gathered in this survey will aid in attracting investments to improve broadband service and accessibility in the county,” states ECEDA Executive Director Cary Cox.
Elmore County Commissioner Bart Mercer says “The Elmore County Commission continues to work closely with the ECEDA on ways to best facilitate the deployment of broadband infrastructure in the underserved areas of Elmore County. This survey is a critical step in formulating a strategy to provide solutions.”
Anyone desiring more information on the survey can contact Cary Cox by phone at (334) 524-0817 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
