Oswego County Government Asks Residents' Input on High-Speed Internet
Oswego County government is asking residents to complete a short survey about the need for high-speed Internet, or broadband, in the county.
Broadband is a high-speed, large-capacity network that can carry several services, including Internet, data, telephone and television, at the same time.
“The purpose of the survey is to find out how much interest there is among Oswego County residents and businesses in having a high-speed Internet provider,” said Legislature Chairman Barry Leemann, District 4, Amboy. “Many of our residents subscribe to a dial-up, satellite or cable service for their Internet access. Information from the survey will help us determine how much interest there is in high-speed Internet, and will help in submitting grant applications.”
The survey contains 15 questions about residents' phone, Internet and computer services, and includes room for additional comments. Survey forms will be located at various polling places and most town, village and city offices in the county on Election Day. People may leave completed surveys at their polling location; mail them to the Oswego County Planning Office, 46 E. Bridge St., Oswego, or fax to the Planning Office at 349-8279. The survey form may also be downloaded by clicking on the link below. The forms should be returned by Monday, Nov. 17.
People with questions may contact the county Planning Office at 349-8292 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 8292.
