Connected Businesses

Rains County

In an effort to improve broadband access, adoption, and use, our community is participating in Connected Nation’s Connected Community program. This project will assess the current status of technology access, adoption, and use in our area so we can develop a Technology Action Plan to improve the quality of life and economic potential in our community.

Your answers to this survey are critical to identify the current need for improved internet access and support in our community. This information will then be used to develop plans with local broadband providers and others to improve technology and internet service and support in our community.

Positive economic activity in a community depends on the success of its private-sector business establishments to develop new and innovative products, provide services, attract investment, and create jobs. Small business establishment and growth, entrepreneurship, and innovation are hallmarks of the American economic system, and internet connectivity, coupled with new technology, devices, and applications, is perpetuating these ideals in new and exciting ways.

This survey is designed to collect data on how local businesses of all types (except agriculture and healthcare, which have their own survey) are using broadband and related technologies. Survey respondents must be at least 18 years of age with a working knowledge of the technology used by the business.

Please submit one survey per business. We estimate that this survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
