Superior seeks opinions on broadband

Exploration of a city-owned fiber optic network continues.


Superior officials were hoping for more participants when the city conducted a survey to determine interest in lower cost internet.

A total of 285 people, including 12 who represented businesses, responded to the survey in the month since it was posted.

The survey found that nearly 78% of those who responded said speed and bandwidth are important; 72% said provider choice was important; and 70% said they would support a city-owned fiber optic network.

With people working and attending school from home, some of those who responded unfavorably to the survey might have a different view of those questions, said Devin Cox of Entry Point Networks in Salt Lake City, Utah. The company is working with officials to develop a plan for a city-owned utility that would allow users to access additional internet providers to lower the cost of internet service in Superior.

Cox said while the survey is statistically relevant, he said it would be better if the city could get opinions from a larger number of households in Superior.
