Answer all questions to the best of your knowledge but don't worry about getting answers exactly right. If you're unsure about an answer just make an estimate. A good guess is better than a blank answer. Information from this survey will not be shared or used for any purpose other than public planning.
The County of Merced recognizes that broadband is an essential, critical infrastructure for the economic growth of the region. Furthermore, the advancement of technology and infrastructure associated with broadband will play a key role in the economic future and quality of life of the county. As such, the County of Merced has entered into an agreement with Magellan Advisors, in partnership with the City of Merced, to work alongside the 6 incorporated cities and the unincorporated communities to prepare a broadband strategic plan for the county. The broadband strategic plan will include key policy directions for broadband expansion and development, and will aim to enhance public and private investment in technology infrastructure to improve overall access to broadband and strengthen the economic competitiveness of the region.
