Community Broadband Survey
The Haywood Broadband Initiative is a collaborative project involving local government, the Haywood County Economic Development Council, the NC Department of Commerce, and various representatives from broadband and cable companies to assess our community’s broadband needs, to identify unserved or underserved businesses and residences, and to create a map of potential demand and service assets, with the goal of attracting service providers offering expanded service and higher speed options.
