Due to the importance of this initiative in our expanding broadband availability and technology utilization, I would like to remind everyone in Tennessee to complete the Statewide Assessment of Broadband Access and Usage in Tennessee.
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd announced earlier this year (news story) the launch of a statewide assessment of broadband access and usage in Tennessee. For this initiative, it is important for them to receive as much information from individual households and businesses as possible, so I encourage everyone to take the survey at www.tn.gov/broadband.
Broadband availability is better in Cheatham County than in most rural areas, but I still hear comments about dissatisfaction with broadband service and see businesses that could better utilize technology. This assessment could be a step toward bringing better service and more utilization to under served areas of Tennessee.
