Help Kittitas County improve broadband availability by completing online survey

Kittitas County residents are urged to complete broadband survey by January 13th to improve service availability in our area.

Kittitas County residents who would like to see their internet speeds improve are asked to participate in a brief questionnaire between now and January 13, 2023.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently published a nationwide broadband map by address that will be critical to Washington state receiving $900 million in federal funding for 2023. Kittitas County may be eligible for significant new broadband construction funding, but we need to act fast. The FCC provided only a 45-day period over the holiday season to challenge any location or provider mapping errors. All challenges are due by January 13. More information is available online.

The Kittitas County Commission is working hard to increase the local response, and just two minutes of your time could greatly increase our chances of obtaining significant federal funding. Please share this information with your friends and on social media so we can maximize the local responses over the next month.

Thank you for your help in expanding broadband access across Kittitas County for our neighbors who are unserved or underserved.
