Missouri Broadband Surveys Still Being Sought

More than 4,400 responses have been delivered to an online survey being conducted by the University of Missouri Extension intended to help guide broadband development efforts in Missouri communities.

The survey was launched in March. The survey asks households about existing internet use – devices, connections and applications – and barriers to use such as financial obstacles and training and assistance needs.

Researchers are seeking more responses from minority and limited-English-proficiency households and mailing information postcards to randomly selected residents. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.

The survey takes about six minutes and is open to all Missourians age 18 and up. Responses will be accepted through mid-May 2023. Results will inform state and local efforts to expand availability and use of broadband internet access.
