Grant PUD to conduct wireless network survey

Utility sending mail survey to 10,000 potential wireless subscribers

 


Grant PUD will begin conducting a survey of potential wireless network customers in Grant County this month. Those who receive the survey, which is being mailed to about 10,000 customers in proposed wireless locations, are asked to fill out a postage-paid postcard and return it to Grant PUD.

The utility said in a press release that the survey informs customers of Grant PUD’s plan to expand its wireless Internet network to rural parts of the county. The survey then asks customers how they are currently connecting to the Internet, as well as their interest in subscribing to the PUD’s network, which promises a reliable, continuous connection of at least 7 megabits per second.

The utility will use the information from the survey to determine when and where it will deploy the wireless network going forward. Grant PUD is developing plans to provide a countywide Internet network within the next three years, and the results of the survey will help the utility prioritize locations for network service expansion.

Customers who would rather answer the survey questions by email are asked to send their replies to publicaffairs@gcpud.org, via phone by calling (509) 754-0500 during normal business hours.
