The Eastern Panhandle Regional Planning and Development Council (Region 9) is kicking off a series of public meetings next week to collect feedback from residents, businesses, and organizations about internet uses and challenges. The information from the listening sessions will help the State of West Virginia develop a comprehensive plan to address the current digital divide.
“Participation in these listening sessions is critical as the feedback received will help the West Virginia Office of Broadband better understand our region’s issues with accessing reliable and affordable high-speed internet,” said Region 9 Executive Director Rachel Snavely. “These public meetings are the first step in tackling the consistent and pervasive issues we face due to connectivity challenges.”
