Survey to learn about internet needs
Indiana Uplands is conducting a survey to learn about home internet speeds, access to computing devices, and how Uplanders use their digital devices. You can help by filling out the survey and sharing it with those in your community. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Survey responses will be used to shape a digital inclusion plan for the Indiana Uplands region and each of our 11 counties. From e-learning to remote work, telehealth, internet reliability, and access to quality devices — digital inclusiveness is crucial to the healthy functioning of our communities.
This study will define ways we can work to improve infrastructure, internet speed, connectivity, access to devices, and digital literacy. By improving our region’s digital capital, we can advance economic and community prosperity across the Indiana Uplands region.
The survey closes Monday, Nov 16, 2020. To learn more about ROI’s Digital Inclusion project, visit www.regionalopportunityinc.org.
