In rural Northern California, there is a critical need for dependable broadband to serve business, telehealth, distance education, economic/workforce development and emergency services communication.  Geographical Information Center at CSU, Chico is doing a Business Broadband Survey and CalSPEED Internet Usage Study. In conjunction with the California Public Utilities Commission, the Geographical Information Center at CSU, Chico is collecting important data from our region to prove the case that improved service is desperately needed, and to show that in some areas, businesses are not receiving the speeds that their carriers are advertising.

By completing the Business Broadband Survey at https://www.necalbroadband.org  you will be confirming or refuting carrier supplied information and helping provide a more accurate description of coverage in California.   To check your internet speeds download the CalSPEED usage study at (https://www.necalbroadband.org/#calspeed).

The Geographical Information Center (GIC) at CSU, Chico is the lead agency for the Northeast and Upstate California Connects Consortia (NECCC and UCCC) with the goal of coordinating funding opportunities and supporting the introduction and expansion of broadband services throughout rural Northern California and the Sacramento Valley. The two consortia cover Butte, Glenn, Colusa, Lake, Tehama, Plumas, Shasta, Lassen, Siskiyou, and Modoc counties.
