The Washtenaw County Broadband Initiative has provided an update on progress towards achieving universal broadband Internet access across Washtenaw County.
Please refer their report by clicking on this link. The report includes the Freedom Township specific results from a survey conducted earlier this year.
See the instructions for joining this initiative if you are interested.
A message from Melanie Bell, coordinator of this effort, follows:
In the fall of 2013, the Washtenaw County Broadband Initiative was formed through a partnership of several township supervisors, key village, city and county leaders, and Connect Michigan. Supported by Representative Gretchen Driskell, our goal is to better understand the need for broadband service by our residents, develop mutually beneficial relationships with local broadband providers, and identify and implement plans to increase and improve service where the need exists.
As part of that plan we conducted a survey earlier this year and we would like to communicate the results of that survey and our progress to your communities. We need your help distributing this information to as many people as possible. It would also be helpful if you could post a link to the PDF for your community on your website. You may also want to link to the overall results which can be found here http://bit.ly/10faRL8
If you are interested in contributing more to this effort, we will be meeting Dec. 5th at 11am in the Sylvan Township Hall.
Thank you for your assistance!
