Please see the link below for the full text and results of the survey.


In the fall of 2013, the City of Iowa City Telecommunications Commission conducted a survey of over six hundred Iowa City area residential broadband consumers, looking at factors affecting consumer satisfaction, consumer knowledge of their broadband service, patterns of broadband use, and broadband network performance. The survey results will be used by the Commission in developing a public education program to help consumers better understand their broadband service and options.

Ever wonder who has the fastest internet connection in town? Feel like your download speeds aren't up to snuff? City officials had the same concerns, and have developed a simple survey to collect data on residential broadband service in the Iowa City area.

The Iowa City Telecommunications Commission (ICTC), a volunteer board appointed by the City Council, is tasked in part with monitoring and evaluating the telecommunications systems in Iowa City. This includes working with internet service providers, like Mediacom and Century Link, to see how customers' broadband needs are being met. 

In collaboration with City staff, the ICTC designed a survey to collect information about residential broadband, now live online at iowacitytelecom.com. Paper versions of the survey are also available upon request to the City of Iowa City's cable administration office at 356-5017.
