HELP BRING BROADBAND TO MICHIGAN
More than 380,000 homes in rural Michigan do not have access to broadband. This digital divide is negatively impacting communities across the state. Many existing depictions of Internet coverage used by the federal government to allocate infrastructure investments are overstated and inaccurate. In response, Merit Network and the Quello Center developed a citizen-science crowdsourcing technique to collect accurate, granular and actionable data.
As a citizen in an underserved or unserved community, your participation is important! The goal of this survey is to identify areas of Michigan that do not have, or have poor broadband Internet service. Merit is not a direct residential broadband provider, but will act as a catalyst to encourage partnerships and collaborations within the Michigan Moonshot ecosystem to move community broadband connectivity forward.
Completing this survey should take five minutes or less. Any information submitted will not be sold, but may be used in planning to expand access opportunities with government and local partners. We understand that you may not have all the necessary information to answer each question on this survey, please answer to the best of your ability.
