Wythe County officials are working with local residents to shape future broadband expansion and access. A survey, available this week online and by mail, gives residents the opportunity to provide input on Internet usage, needs and access. 

Residents should expect to see the survey in their mailboxes late this week. Survey questions focus on Internet user needs, access, speeds, providers and pricing. One survey is intended for residential users with a second survey targeted to business users.

Residents may take the survey online or by mail. Follow these links to take the survey:
