Business and Broadband - We Need Your Help!

We need your help!! 

Broadband (high-speed Internet access) is becoming increasingly vital to our local businesses and residents as being online has become an important part of our everyday lives. From keeping in touch with friends and family via social media and email, to online banking and on-demand television, being connected to Broadband provides a faster more convenient way to access a huge range of services. However, online services only benefit those that can access them and businesses report that slower connection speeds limit efficiency and productivity.

In response, the City of Lakeport is seeking information through this short survey to determine/define the Broadband needs of its businesses. Understanding demand for services may be useful information as we work to expand Broadband access in the community.

Your participation in this survey does not subscribe participants to new service or create any other obligations, nor does it guaranty that Broadband service will be made available to you or existing speeds will be improved.

We hope that all local  businesses will complete the survey to give us the best possible indication of areas of unmet need and increased demand.
Please encourage your friends, neighbors and colleagues to get involved.

This survey will help us assess current status of broadband (or high speed Internet) service availability and subscription for businesses, so we can determine and recommend to Internet ecosystem stakeholders (ISPs, local governments, regulators, business chambers, economic development organizations, among others) what types of improvements are needed to meet business demands in our region.
Please complete a separate survey for each business.

Thank you for helping us gather this important information. For more information please contact Alice Patterson at 530-518-3527 or
