CNY Broadband Internet Survey

broadbandhandout promo.jpgThe Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board (CNY RPDB) has teamed up with its member counties (Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, and Oswego) to find out where our neighbors remain unserved or underserved in terms of broadband internet access. And they want to hear from you!

To make your voice heard, simply visit https://www.cnyinternet.com/onondaga-county-home and complete the residential or business survey. Five minutes of your time is all it takes to help improve broadband internet access in Onondaga County. 

Paper copies of the survey are available on request. Simply ask an OFL staff member to print one out for you. Completed paper surveys can be returned to the library.
