Broadband Survey

Please help us collect data for Broadband in Columbia County by taking the new survey prepared by the Town of Hillsdale Broadband Committee.  By evaluating the original Connect Columbia survey and this new one, it has been determined that the Broadband Programs Office maps do not accurately reflect the availability and speeds of Broadband in Columbia County. The purpose of this survey is to assist in correcting those inaccuracies.  The data collected will be shared with the Board of Supervisor’s Economic Development Broadband subcommittee.   Thank you for your cooperation.

Here is the survey link:
