Broadband Survey

Please take a moment to complete this survey from Connect Columbia. It will only take 1-3 minutes of your time and will help the Ghent Broadband Committee, along with the county subcommittee, towards bringing broadband to everyone in Columbia County. The results will be very important to our overall broadband efforts with regard to mapping and targeting underserved areas in our town. On the residential survey, entering a street address is optional, but the more respondents who enter their addresses the better our overall mapping results will be.
