N.C. Broadband — a part of the N.C. Department of Commerce — is collecting data on the number of Jackson County households and businesses currently lacking Internet service that are interested in purchasing it. The information will be used to entice business to move into those areas and invest in Internet infrastructure.
The survey can be accessed online. Hard copies are available at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva, at the Albert Carlton Library in Cashiers, at the Jackson County Recreation Center in Cullowhee, at the Cashiers-Glenville Recreation Center in Cashiers and at volunteer fire department stations throughout the county.
