BANNOCK COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) – The Bannock County Commissioners are asking for your help rolling out broadband in the county by completing a quick survey.

The survey will determine which areas in Bannock County have poor internet access and speeds.

To collect the most useful data, the commissioners ask you to take the survey from your home or work while connected to a WiFi or wired internet rather than cellular data.

In particular, the commissioners hope that residents and business owners outside the Pocatello and Chubbuck city limits will take part in the survey.

“We are specifically looking for residents from the Buckskin area to the Robin area as these locations would benefit most from improved internet access,” said Commissioner Jeff Hough.

The information gathered from the survey will be used to guide investment of funds from the Idaho Broadband Grant Program or the American Rescue Plan Act that can be used for broadband infrastructure.

“Investing in this infrastructure will help us become more attractive to businesses and future growth by providing state-of-the-art Internet access,” said Hough.

You have until December 17th to take the broadband survey HERE.
