Efforts are currently underway to bring greater broadband internet access to the entirety of Bond County. The Bond County Broadband Committee was recently formed with a mission to provide the highest level of broad-band internet service, with a focus on achieving digital equity for currently unserved and underserved populations in both communities and remote rural areas of Bond County. To achieve that mission, the Broadband Committee needs the help of Bond County residents in a simple task – to complete an online survey about current internet speeds and usage. The survey can be completed by visiting BondCountyIL.gov. For residents without internet service, the survey may be completed over-the-phone at 618-664-0618.
Any Bond County resident completing the survey between April 1- June 30, 2022 will be entered to win a Visa gift card. On the first business day of May, June, and July, two survey participants will be randomly selected to win one $100 Visa gift card each. The six winners from those months will be entered into a second drawing for an additional $400 Visa gift card. All survey participants will be included in each month’s drawing.
To ensure the most accurate and helpful information, participation is limited to one entry/survey per household. Members of the Bond County Broadband Committee, County Board and their families are not eligible to win, but are encouraged to complete the survey. Once a monthly winner has been chosen, they are ineligible to be drawn as a winner for a second or third month.
