Section 3: Assess



The goal of the section is to provide tools on gathering information about your community assets, broadband readiness, broadband providers and infrastructure, and franchise agreements, that relate to your community.

Assessing the community may be the most time consuming step in your broadband planning. There are tools throughout this module that can be used to baseline community assets and opinions.


We suggest you start your assessment by completing the Community Broadband Readineness Assessment Tool developed by the University of New Hampshire's Cooperative Extension department.
