The Mt. Pleasant Economic Development Corporation is surveying residents of Mt. Pleasant and Titus County about internet availablity and function in the area. Please take a moment to participate in the nine question survey.
Mount Pleasant Economic Development is partnering with an internet utility & engineering firm to expand high-speed, broadband internet infrastructure in our community. The firm specializes in activating remote areas, then working inward, toward higher populations like cities. Providing internet connectivity to our entire community and allowing for competition is a win-win for everyone.
We've already sat down with NTCC, A&M Texarkana at NTCC, MPISD, CHISD, and HBISD to discuss our education needs. Now we need to hear from the rest of the community in order to map out the availability!
Internet connectivity is paramount to economic growth. Today, businesses, families, schools, and communities at large rely on ‘connectivity’. From schoolwork and homework assignments, to work requirements and projects, to opportunities for remote-workers and entrepreneurs, the reach and potential of a high-speed internet connection is crucial to the success of any community.
How can you help? It's simple & only takes a few minutes.
To get started, just fill out your address information and note whether you are a residential internet user or commercial user. Then hit GO and answer a few questions.
If you feel like having some fun, you can opt to take a speed test of your internet connection.
This information will be used to both determine interest and prove the need for an expansion of broadband service in our area.
Every voice matters, no matter where you live, so fill out a survey! Do it for the children. Do it for your home. Do it for your business. Do it for our collective economic future.
Thank you for helping us grow as a truly connected community!
Let's go, Mount Pleasant Community!
