Resident Broadband Survey


Help Plan For a More Connected Future

We all know how important the Internet is in our daily lives. Unfortunately, high-speed Internet isn't reliable or available in some areas of our community. In order to bridge this digital divide, Livingston County needs to gain a better picture of connectivity in our area. 

For this, we need your help! 

The County has partnered with Merit Network to create a survey to gather this valuable information. Your response is very important! The information you provide will only be used to explore broadband access options, and will not be sold. Understanding what Internet access looks like in our County is the critical first step in addressing our needs.

Please complete our quick and easy survey. By participating, each resident helps us plan for better connection.


 Why Should I Participate?

Your-Response-Matters-To-Us.png Many homes in our community don't have reliable access or connection at all to high-speed Internet. By taking our survey, you can help us identify gaps in our area's Internet connection. We will use this information to help plan for broadband access expansion. 

Connection to the Internet is important for many areas of our lives. Here are some ways better access impacts us all:

  • Education - Students without broadband at home are at a significant disadvantage vs. their peers. Students with high-speed Internet access at home have more digital skills, higher grades, and perform better on standardized tests like the SAT. 
  • Public Safety - Communities without broadband suffer 25% higher rates of death, injuries and crime.
  • Economic Development - Having a home broadband connection gives households an estimated economic benefit of $1,850 a year. 
  • Agriculture - Farmers with broadband access experience a 6% increase in revenue on average.
