The county has created a survey to pinpoint those areas. It includes an internet speed test that will let residents measure how quickly they are able to download and upload data.

The Ingham County Controller says the survey, available here and in the link below, will ensure everyone has access to high-speed internet.

The deadline for the survey is Aug. 31. Once the survey is completed, the federal government will provide funding to serve those communities. Ingham County residents who don’t have internet may call the Ingham County Controller’s Office at 517-676-72-06 to get a paper survey sent to their home.
