Access to high-speed broadband is essential to access today's education and workplace services, facilitate public safety, and engage in online economic opportunities. NoaNet is working with communities across Washington State to ensure that our residents and businesses have the infrastructure and services they need. Thank you for visiting the survey portal and don't hesitate to reach out if your community wants to explore their broadband landscape with NoaNet!
This survey system is to facilitate data gathering and conversation to better understand rural community broadband needs. If your community has opted into this service you are helping them evaulate the local need for broadband services. Where we see great demand we will do an in-depth assessment of the feasibility of building a high-speed broadband network there and if viable we will build first to those who want it most. So keep on encouraging your neighbors to take our survey or sign up to services. The process follows four simple steps:
Step 1, Gather Interest: Click on your area and take the survey to provide your feedback. Don’t forget to tell your neighbors to do the same! The more data collected the better your community leaders will understand the needs of the community.
Step 2, Sign up: If your community decides the demand meets their feasibility requirements and business case threshold, they will open the survey up for signups. If the take rate for feasibility determined by your community leaders is met, a network will soon be deploying your area.
Step 3, Construction: If this portal moves to this step you’ve passed the threshold and our feasibility assessment and the build-out in your area is beginning.
Step 4, Connected: This means your area's take-rate thresholds were met, construction has been completed, and you and your neighbors are now surfing the web at lightning speed!
