Help Close the Digital Divide in Montana

An internet connection is crucial for residents for school, work, and staying in touch with friends and family. As such, the Montana Department of Administration’s¬†ConnectMT¬†broadband effort is conducting research to increase broadband access and quality across the state. To meet the needs of as many Montana residents as possible, it is important that officials understand the experiences and opinions of both individuals and community groups.

They are asking residents of Montana, 18 years or older, to take the survey and tell them about your individual experiences and opinions on broadband access. The survey is being administered by Summit Consulting, LLC on behalf of ConnectMT.

In addition, the State of Montana has contracted with Summit Consulting to host a series of outreach sessions across Montana for community leaders. These outreach sessions are crucial to hearing firsthand how internet access (or a lack thereof) impacts your communities. The nearest one to Choteau is at the Heritage Inn in Great Falls on September 13 from 8a-9p, to RSVP for a session, please click here by Friday, September 2.

If you have any concerns or questions about the survey, or have trouble accessing the survey, please contact ConnectMT@mt.gov and one of the research team members will respond as soon as possible. 

Thank you in advance for your participation and helping to close the digital divide in Montana.
