Gloucester County is conducting a direct mail survey of residents and businesses identified in a recent community review of those who do not have access to high-speed broadband.
The survey consists of a short, one-page questionnaire to specific identified addresses in the county to confirm unavailability of high-speed service and determine interest in obtaining broadband services. Addresses for the direct mail survey were obtained from a list of unserved addresses compiled by the county and publicized for review and input earlier this spring.
Gloucester is in the process of gathering information in order to apply by Sept. 3 for a Virginia Telecommunications Initiative grant. In addition to obtaining important information on the unserved areas and potential future broadband customers, a request for proposal has been issued for engineering services to design a broadband network that may include fiber, fixed wireless and small cell systems for the grant application process.
