Where are our Internet gaps? Help your community by telling us about your local internet service! Fellow Kansans at the University of Kansas Institute for Policy & Social Research are seeking ways to improve internet access and quality in our state. We need your help finding areas in Kansas that experience internet service gaps. These gaps keep people in Kansas communities from being able to access online education, health care and other critical services. Take the survey and help Kansas get better connected: https://ipsr.ku.edu/broadband/kansas.shtml. This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. You may take the survey only once.
