Physical survey of nearly 31,000 homes and businesses across 15 of Washtenaw Counties twenty survey townships, which are mostly or entirely rural.  The survey identified more than 8000 occupied parcels (almost entirely residential), without access to reliable high speed internet as defined by the FCC as having 25 Mb/s minimum download speeds, and 3 Mb/s upload speeds.

The study included the following:    

  • Served/Unserved Audit of every Parcel

  • Defined Proposed Funded Service Areas (PFSA)

  • County Wide Unlicensed Wireless Technologies Assessment

  • Pre-Engineering Fiber Optic Network routing and design

  • Construction Budget Forecast by Township

The image on the right is Washtenaw County showing the survey results of the 15 townships.  Due to the efforts of the Washtenaw County Broadband Task Force, and sponsorship from the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners, efforts are underway to bring Broadband Internet to all unserved areas by 2025. The goal is for Washtenaw County to be the first in the state to serve 100% of their residents and businesses with access to true high speed Broadband Internet.
