Internet Assessment Survey

This survey is part of Pamlico County Economic Government, East Carolina Council of Governments and NC State Broadband Infrastructure Office’s Internet Assessment for Pamlico County. We ask that our county residents and businesses complete this survey to assist us to properly assess, document and map our internet needs. The necessary data collected will be used to try to find solutions and funding to improve internet access and connectivity consistency in Pamlico County.

Students returning completed surveys to schools by June 1, 2017 for their household are entered to win a $25 gift card. Persons age 18 and over returning this survey with a completed address between May 9th- July 9, 2017 will be entered into a $100 gift card drawing- only one entry per address accepted for drawing.
