We Need Your Help
to Improve Access to Broadband in the Region!
PLEASE TAKE THE NWCCOG BROADBAND SURVEY AND SPEED TEST!
NWCCOG is asking all community members to complete a short survey and internet service speed test, which will help build good information for the regional broadband plan the NWCCOG is developing. If you have already taken this survey at your work location, please take the speed test again from your home internet connection and enter your physical location. The data will not be released or used outside of the strategic plan and no one will contact you or collect your e-mail address (click here for our privacy statement http://www.ohivey.com/test/privacy.php). This data will only be used to identify broadband quality in the region. We do need your physical location so we can map the actual internet speeds around the region, which will help us to identify the areas most in need. This plan's goal is to help ensure residents and businesses in the region have sufficient access to broadband. The survey can be found HERE and on NWCCOG's website: www.nwccog.org under "News and Current Issues" on the homepage.

Background on Project:
Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG) recognizes that access to broadband services to connect to the Internet and other online services is important to economic development and quality of life in the region. Therefore, NWCCOG is embarking on a strategic planning effort focused on improving access to broadband for an eight county area, which consists of Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Jackson, Moffat, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt, and Summit counties, and the City of Glenwood Springs and Town of Carbondale. This project is funded by a grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs' Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Fund. The end goal of this strategic planning effort is to develop a blueprint that will outline several action steps local governments can take to improve access to broadband in the region.
Part of this planning effort involves asking all stakeholders in the community to provide input on what will make broadband better in this region. NWCCOG is asking all community members to complete a short survey which will help build good information for the plan whose goal is to help ensure residents and businesses in the region have sufficient access to broadband. The survey can be found on NWCCOG's website: www.nwccog.org - under "News and Current Issues" on the homepage.
