The Southwestern Commission, in conjunction with MountainWest Partnership, is asking local citizens and businesses to participate in a broadband assessment for the region. To participate, please start by entering your home or business address to the right and clicking the "Search for My Address" button. 

This survey will verify availability of services in our counties, identify actual speeds available, and collect information on demand for services from respondents. While some counties have conducted individual broadband surveys already, this regional effort gives all counties the chance to participate. We hope residents in all seven counties will participate in this effort so the entire region will have uniform data. Data from the county-specific demand surveys (such as Haywood, Jackson, Macon, and Swain) will still be considered in our overall broadband planning.

Initial data collected will provide valuable information to the Southwestern Commission and MountainWest Partnership, as well as state and local partners working towards broadband and Economic Development planning for the region. Anonymized data may be shared with broadband providers or planning partners with the goal of improving Internet services throughout the region.

The Southwestern Commission is one of the 16 regional councils of government for North Carolina and represents Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties. MountainWest Partnership is the Economic Development Partnership for the seven counties in the southwestern region and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

For questions on the survey, please contact Sarah Thompson at sarah@regiona.org.

Making Great Progress!

9:50am November 8, 2017

Wow, what a great response! Our site has been up and running for about a month now and the engagement we're seeing is fantastic! Cherokee County is 28% to goal, Graham County is 83% to goal, Jackson County is 26% to goal, Macon County is 33% to goal, and Clay County is 22% to goal. If you're in Haywood County (6% to goal) or Swain County (9% to goal) we could really use your help in spreading the word. The more responses we have, the more reliable data we have to work with. The Southwestern Commission and MountainWest Partnership are excited to see such great movement on this campaign, and look forward to all the counties reaching their goals! Remember, the survey will be active for two more months, so let's get the word out!
