Survey could expand Wharton County broadband services

Wharton Economic Development Corporation, along with the Wharton Chamber of Commerce and the City Development Corporation of El Campo have teamed up with Connected Nation to assess Wharton County internet services.

Connected Nation develops and provides the tools, resources and methods that help communities create and implement solutions to broadband and digital technology gaps.

“We assess and plan for the expansion of broadband access, adoption and use,” Connected Nation said in their mission statement. “We empower people with technology skills and resources to improve their quality of life and we develop public-private partnerships to bring technology access to targeted geographies and population.”


The entity has provided a survey for residents, students, organizations and business owners to express their needs when it comes to the current internet landscape.

Data collected from this survey will provide a way for local elected officials and community stakeholders in healthcare, education and business to work together to chart a course for accelerating local access, adoption and use of high-speed internet and related technologies.

The link to survey can be found below:
