IMPORTANT: please take the time to add your information to the new Broadband Survey, including a speed test, put together by the Hillsdale Broadband committee that covers the entire county.

​

Apparently, the Broadband Programs Office maps do not accurately reflect the availability and speeds of Broadband in Columbia County. The purpose of this survey is to assist in correcting those inaccuracies.
