WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Wichita County Broadband Committee is asking residents, businesses and other organizations to take a survey about internet access and use.

The survey has to do with the project expanding upon and determining the need for broadband services in Wichita County. Survey responses will help the committee to better understand existing resources and capabilities to support access, adoption and use of broadband technology.

“The Wichita County Broadband team is excited to partner with CN Texas and get this project underway,” said Wichita County Judge Woodrow Gossom. “We want to better understand our community’s broadband needs and put actionable steps in place to improve connectivity for the residents and businesses in Wichita County.”

“We think it’s really important to go into places like Wichita County where there might be students that are undeserved and they might not be able to do school from home or do telehealth visits,” said Sierra Sees, broadband solutions manager for Connected Nation.

Sees said the benefits could help save time for residents and offer more flexibility.
