Ingham County Broadband Internet Survey Needs More Respondents

Officials are expanding an investigation that aims to determine which parts of Ingham County lack high-speed broadband until the end of August.

The Ingham County Controller’s Office launched the survey, called the Ingham County Broadband Census, in early June. As of Friday, County Controller Gregg Todd said, officials had received responses from 3,165 households — about 3% of the county.

“We were really shooting for between 5% and 7%, so we’re about 2,000 (households) away from where we want to be,” Todd said. “We’ve had good responses from the rural areas, so that’s good, because that was one of our biggest concerns… but our responses in East Lansing, Lansing and some other more urban areas weren’t as good as we’d like. to be.”
