In order to better understand specific broadband availability, needs, uses and barriers to adoption, the LinkWYOMING team conducted consumer market research. Households were selected randomly to participate in a telephone survey, and the survey was made available on this website for those wishing to participate online.
All individual responses, whether obtained through telephone or online, were confidential. Collectively, responses provide important feedback for the planning phase of this statewide project.
Our thanks to all who provided critical insights into how and why residents of Wyoming use high-speed Internet, as well as what needs may exist within our communities.
This quantitative study is being used by regional planning teams to better understand Internet use and needs across their areas.
The following presentation summarizes data gathered from nearly 1,700 Wyoming residents. The primary method of data gathering was personal telephone interviews lasting an average of just over 15 minutes.
The report includes interesting findings, such as:
- What Wyoming residents use the Internet for.
- Why some are unhappy with their service.
- Which Internet tools may replace e-mail as most often used.
- How much time residents of Wyoming spend on the Internet.
- The main reasons non-subscribers have not adopted broadband.
