A critical step in the opening stages of enhancing broadband services is underway, but needs help from Door County residents. The Door County Economic Development Corporation is asking for business owners and residents to offer their perspectives on their broadband capabilities and needs through a survey. The results will be assessed by Finley Engineering, who is tasked with observing the county’s broadband access. The consultants will take input from the surveys and use it to assist them in identifying challenges and developing a long-term strategy for delivering county-wide broadband. DCEDC Executive Director Jenkins also notes that there will be high standards for connection.
There is a separate survey for residents and business owners. The DCEDC hopes people fill out the survey for either category they fall into, even if they are under both. Jenkins hopes to see a geographically dispersed response by the end of June.
