5-question survey only takes a couple of minutes

INDEPENDENCE — The Grayson County administrator’s office has released a survey for citizens to determine the need for high-speed internet availability in the county.

Carl Caudill, technology director for the county, said the survey will be made available both online and on paper. Paper copies will be available at local libraries and the office of The Gazette and The Declaration, at 108 West Stuart Drive in Galax.

The survey released Tuesday only includes five questions. Caudill requested that everyone in Grayson County fill it out to help them with future plans for broadband internet access.

“We need to know what the need is in our area so we can concentrate on our efforts to reach everyone in the county,” said Caudill. “This survey will also help us to develop a road map of where to begin in relation with where the lines will be run.”

Grayson recently announced that it will partner with GigaBeam and Appalachian Power Co. to provide high-speed internet all over the county.
