HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A new survey has been created by Henry County officials for residents regarding their home internet service that will be used to expand internet options county-wide.
Henry County says the survey was created for people who want to upgrade their internet connections, but have limited alternative provider options.
According to county representatives, the two-question survey is the first step of phase two of the county’s broadband expansion efforts. Answering these two questions will reportedly help Henry County administrators pinpoint which residents are affected by internet access.
The survey asks who provides your internet and where you live. County officials say that no other data is collected, and the survey can be completed in less than five minutes.
In June, the Henry County Board of Supervisors decided to award a contract to Riverstreet Networks to build a fiber-to-the-home network, which would serve residents who don’t have any access to internet services, according to the county.
Officials tell WFXR News that phase one of the project is currently in the works following the June decision.
The overall goal of phase two of the project is reportedly to ensure that all Henry County residents have access to fast and reliable internet.
