Utilities of all kinds and sizes across the country have a long history of working together, and today the Utility Broadband Alliance (UBBA) is asking for your assistance with a short utility-only survey about private wireless broadband networks strategies. As utilities, you are focused on modernization, service quality and smarter digitalization of systems. 
The survey results will be used in aggregate to help UBBA members understand the broader utility industry drivers and challenges with regard to critical communications networks, particularly private LTE. 
The members of the Utility Broadband Alliance request your help with this survey.
Thank you!
