October 15, 2021 - NEW NORTH BROADBAND ACCESS STUDY AND EXPANSION PLAN
New North, Inc. is conducting an 18-county study to develop a regional strategy for improved broadband
access and affordability. The COVID-19 pandemic raised the awareness and need for broadband access expansion. Current baseline data related to broadband infrastructure in the region is severely limited, outdated and, in many cases, inaccurate.
In addition, there is no current information regarding the usage characteristics, demand, quality, or reliability of
broadband Internet in the study region.
A key study activity includes a survey of households and businesses in the region. All households are receiving a
flyer with information about the study and a request to complete the residential survey. Obtaining direct feedback from household and business users about broadband service conditions at their locations is critical to the success of the study.
Call to Action by October 29th!
