Nebraska Broadband

The Nebraska Broadband Initiative launched a statewide survey September 3rd. The goal of this project is to help Nebraska businesses to increase economic vitality by more effectively using broadband applications.

Over the next few months, businesses will be asked to conduct an online assessment of their use of broadband technologies. Businesses will either receive a personalized email requesting participation or can participate at the broadband website, http://go.unl.edu/broadband-for-business.

The survey results will provide valuable information on broadband usage by Nebraska businesses and will allow for a comparison of business broadband usage and impacts with peers nationwide.  Additionally, up to 500 businesses who have completed the survey will receive a personalized scorecard and the opportunity to work with a business broadband coach. The scorecards will include ideas on how to better utilize broadband technologies and the return on investment.
