Cariboo broadband survey deadline January 22

by ahnationtalk on January 12, 202117 Views

The first phase of an initiative to bring improved internet and mobile phone service to the Cariboo region will end on January 22, when the public survey on broadband coverage in the region ends. To date over two thousand responses have been received from residents, property owners, and businesses within the Cariboo Regional District.

While documenting the realities of limited service in the region may seem like an exercise in the obvious to those who live and work in the Cariboo Chilcotin, the survey is nonetheless a useful tool. Public participation in the survey has highlighted particular areas of concern, delivered important data regarding how and when people are using internet service, and provided compelling evidence of both the need and demand for improved access across the 80,000 square kilometre regional district.

“We are very pleased with the response from the community to our survey,” said CRD Area F Director and Broadband Committee Chair Maureen LeBourdais. “We have heard from people all across the Cariboo and Chilcotin and are grateful they took the time to answer the survey questions and give us an up-to-date picture of broadband connectivity in our region. It will be vital in determining priorities and solutions as we move forward.”

Regional residents and businesses are also encouraged to test the speed and quality of their internet through this free, confidential link: https://performance.cira.ca/cariboord. Performing this test provides valuable information for establishing the need to improve internet connectivity. People are encouraged to run as many tests as they can even if the survey has already been completed.

To participate in the survey, which takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, please go to:
