The Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority is inviting all businesses in Roanoke City, Roanoke County, and the City of Salem to take an Internet and Data Transport Needs Assessment Survey. Each survey response will help to prioritize future investments in high-speed internet and telecommunications infrastructure.

The Roanoke Regional Business Internet, Data Transport, and Dark Fiber Needs Assessment Survey is 27-questions that can be taken from any internet enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone at: www.bit.ly/RVBA2018

All Roanoke Valley businesses are encouraged to participate. You do NOT have to be a current RVBA customer to participate. The survey should be taken by the person in charge of telecommunications and technology buying decisions for the company and be completed before midnight, February 16, 2018. 

“This is the time for business owners to provide their honest feedback and opinions on the state of business connectivity services in our region,” Frank Smith, President and CEO of the RVBA, said. “We are looking for forward to learning how we can continue to support the communities we serve.”

The Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority was founded as an economic development initiative to help ensure that all Roanoke Valley businesses have access to high-quality services at the speed and capacity they need to grow and remain competitive. With the recent extensions into Roanoke County, the RVBA network now extends past high traffic corridors and over 650 commercial properties in the Roanoke Valley.
