About the Survey
The Florida Rural Broadband Alliance (FRBA) has hired Florida State University's Information Use Management & Policy Institute (Information Institute) to conduct a needs assessment of the existing and future broadband uses and applications of the region's anchor institutions (such as libraries, schools, hospitals, and first responders) including broadband diagnostics at selected anchor sites to describe existing broadband networks, configurations, and uses. This research will inform the deployment and configuration of the Middle Mile network, increase the successful deployment and use of broadband at the region's various anchor institutions, insure that users of the various anchor institutions obtain high quality and up-to-date broadband services, help the FRBA to better document the success of the project, and assist in obtaining additional funds for broadband expansion and economic development in the region.
As part of the needs assessment, the Information Institute is conducting this survey of anchor institutions.
