Broadband survey to take place in Champaign County

A postcard invitation from the County Executive to complete a countywide broadband survey will be mailed this week to specific households that have been randomly selected in each area of the county. Other households may also complete the confidential survey by going online to https://go.illinois.edu/ChampaignCountySurvey.  Surveyors will follow up with house-to-house contact if necessary to get back enough survey responses (similar to the census-taking method). 

The Champaign County board has committed to using a significant amount of the county’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to help expand broadband services in the county.  To help us decide how to invest the county’s funds, the County Executive’s office is conducting a countywide broadband survey in cooperation with the University of Illinois and Champaign County Farm Bureau during June.  The information we collect will give us critical information that we will use to support broadband service providers to expand services in the best ways to meet our local needs.  It is important that we hear from all kinds of people—from those who rarely or never use the internet, as well as those who use it often.  

If you have any questions about this survey or would like to volunteer to help, please call Maryalice Wu at 217-244-0937 or email: malice@illinois.edu.  

For more details about the plan to build out Champaign County, the recently completed Broadband Plan Report can be found on the county’s website as a handout at the Broadband Task Force meeting of April 5, 2022.
