Right now, an estimated 2.4 million Ohio households do not have access to high-speed internet (broadband). Those numbers represent kids, senior citizens, veterans, young adults, small business owners, and so many others who are being left behind.
Connected Nation Ohio (CN Ohio) is gathering data and input from communities across the state. This data will be used to identify the areas that lack access to affordable, high-speed internet and to find solutions to expand that access. Part of that program includes gathering data from residents and businesses about their access and use of broadband (high-speed internet).
CN Ohio will map current broadband coverage, provide technical assistance, and present analyses with a new site of maps that will be available in late 2019. Researchers will be collecting data through online surveys in all counties in Ohio through Nov. 20, 2019. To take part, click here, and follow the prompts. There is a residential and a business survey. The surveys takes about 10 minutes to complete. Hard copies of the residential survey may be downloaded to complete and mail.
