If you haven’t already taken the Cumberland County broadband internet online survey, County Mayor Allen Foster urges you to do so.
“We’ve gotten a good response,” Foster told 1057 news this morning. But he said he’s hoping for broader responses from all sections of the county; that will give him a greater overall picture of where service is adequate and where it’s sorely lacking.
Some folks have told him they’re reluctant to participate because they say their internet is fine and they don’t want to skew the results.
“I want good ones and bad ones,” Foster said. “That would be a big help.”

When asked about the status of the Spirit Broadband settlement, he said it’s still uncertain. The now-defunct company had agreed to a $100,000 settlement with the county last year, but has yet to make good on that agreement. No payment has been made thus far. “We’d like to collect,” Foster said, “but we’re finding it difficult to do so.”
