By participating in this survey, you are agreeing that the Town of Benson and the NC Broadband Infrastructure Office may seek to contact you to follow up on your service needs. Results will be: 1) mapped to show unmet needs or demand for high speed internet and 2) shared with relevant broadband service providers or community planners in an effort to identify service solutions. Therefore, your address in the beginning demographic section is critical to identifying underserved areas. Users submitting data on this survey can choose to NOT allow their location to be mapped. If mapped for public display, specific addresses will be buffered to ensure anonymous addresses. We invite all Benson residents to complete this survey by February 10. For more information on this survey, please call Benson Town Hall at (919) 894-3553. Thank you in advance for your time.
Please check YES or NO
One of the purposes of this survey is to collect and map locations where there is need for additional high-speed Internet options. To map a location, the street address of the location is geocoded (a longitude/ latitude identifier) and used to position markers on a publicly viewable map.
If the location can be mapped, the address WILL NOT appear on the map. It is not required that this location be mapped to complete and submit this survey. If you indicate no, no information will appear on the map.
