Pandemic Shows Need for Internet Capacity

Taking Survey Will Help Local Internet Access Improvement Efforts


In 2019, the Southern Alleghenies Planning and Development Commission (SAP&DC) was awarded a grant to inventory existing broadband assets in the region, identify gaps in internet service, and develop a plan for improving broadband services.

As part of the eight-county study, SAP&DC is conducting a survey to assess current levels of broadband service and needs. More than 4,200 residential surveys and 280 business surveys have been completed.

Adequate internet connectivity is critical to so many aspects of daily life and now, with the pandemic emphasizing the need for reliable broadband infrastructure, the information gathered from the survey responses is of significant value.

Understanding the importance of this issue, SAP&DC is committed to continue identifying and implementing broadband solutions across the region.

In order to assist with these planning efforts, please take a few minutes to complete the below survey prior to April 30, 2020.

Those willing to help can take the survey in less than five minutes by going to one of the follow websites:
