About NC Broadband:
NC Broadband, a division of the North Carolina Department of Commerce, was created to carry out the work
of the State Broadband Data and Development Grant awarded to North Carolina by the National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce. As such, NC
Broadband serves as the State Broadband Initiative for North Carolina, and collects data on where broadband
is available in the state.
About the Lack of Broadband Service Registry:
The data in this survey is being collected in order to identify pockets around the state of areas unserved or
underserved with broadband Internet access, and corresponding demand for service.
By participating in this survey, you are agreeing that NC Broadband may seek to contact you to follow up on
your service registry. In addition, NC Broadband may use your information to analyze pockets of broadband
service requests around the state. This information may be shared with relevant broadband service providers
or community planners in an effort to identify service solutions. This information may also be mapped by NC
Broadband. If mapped for public display, specific addresses will be buffered to ensure anonymous addresses.
