Locals surveyed about their Internet needs

Input from Yolo County businesses and residents concerning their Internet needs and services is being sought via a survey posted at www.yolocounty.org.

The survey, conducted by the Yolo Local Agency Formation Commission, is part of a countywide strategic planning initiative to formulate a long-term, sustainable broadband plan.

The countywide region — including the cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland, and all the unincorporated communities and rural areas within Yolo County — is embarking on a collaborative broadband Internet planning study to determine how to best ensure that businesses, residents and community anchors have access to affordable, reliable broadband Internet service that will meet their long-term needs, a news release said.

The goals of the study are to determine what Internet service is currently available and where there are gaps, to identify related community goals and, ultimately, to produce a strategic “roadmap” of how to best close gaps in service and achieve community objectives.

Those who live and work in Yolo County are asked to help in this effort by completing the short online survey and by encouraging family, friends and colleagues to do the same. The survey is important because, in addition to learning about the needs of Yolo County businesses and residents, it includes a “wireline” speed test that will gather important information about Internet speeds throughout Yolo County.

This speed data, currently mapped by the California Public Utilities Commission, is based on Internet provider data, which can overstate actual speeds. Gathering accurate data of actual Internet speeds is a critical step in making Yolo County communities eligible for related state and federal grant funding, the news release said.

To participate in the survey, go to www.yolocounty.org and select the Yolo Broadband Survey link.
