When Mountain State Spotlight first launched, we asked our readers what topics they would like to see us cover. Broadband was at the top of the list. So, we listened.
Since then, you’ve seen our broadband stories: about Frontier’s failed expansion promises, questionably-spent federal funds, poor communication during project planning, challenges with distance learning and much more.
But statewide, so much of the broadband coverage is about money, and so little is about the real-life experiences of West Virginians with challenges accessing the internet. As we continue our coverage, we want to hear more from you. Specifically: how fast (or slow) is your internet? What other issues do you encounter trying to stream movies, turn in schoolwork or apply for jobs in your corner of West Virginia? Your answers to our survey will help guide our future reporting.
And we know: it’s ironic that we’re reaching out online to ask you about your connectivity issues. So, please, share with your friends, family and neighbors.
