PARADISE, Calif. - A project to improve broadband connectivity in Paradise is underway.

According to Disaster Recovery Director Katie Simmons, residents indicated a pressing need for improved internet access as part of the Long Term Recovery Plan. The Town now says it is moving ahead on the project and asking for resident input to understand case-by-case capacity requirements.

The Town has partnered with the Center for Economic Development at Chico State to perform an analysis and identify broadband needs. The study will evaluate Internet usage, service, and needs to provide insight into the current and future demand for broadband internet products and services.

To ensure all internet user needs are considered, The Town is asking Paradise residents, property owners, prospective residents, and those with business interests in the Town to participate in the study by completing a short survey, Click Here.

“We need to build for the future,” said Town Manager Lauren Gill, “The current climate is illustrating every day the increased need to be fully wired -- for our children, who need to study remotely, for our existing businesses who rely more than ever on the Internet, and for future businesses who may want to enjoy the Paradise rural lifestyle but need the certainty of connectivity.”

The survey work is funded by a grant from North Valley Community Foundation Butte Strong Fund.
