Project: Connect Cumberland

Broadband Resource Study

Based on feedback from community leaders, the Cumberland County Commissioners have made access to broadband a priority goal. With limited resources and no home rule, our capability to support this goal lies in planning, education, advocacy, and very strategic funding. Cumberland County has earned a federal grant to launch a research project that will help our communities identify where the need exists for better access to broadband, and how to achieve it. 

As part of this research project, Cumberland County is asking residents and businesses to answer a brief online survey.

This online survey is a low-cost tool to collect input from citizens. The data gathered will be used by the County to assess whether current internet services are meeting the needs of our communities. The results of the survey will be used to develop future community plans. These outcomes will be shared with community stakeholders in Spring 2019.

No marketers will have access to the data. No one will contact you as a result of taking the survey.
