A group of Los Alamos residents is conducting a survey among internet users in Los Alamos to determine what member quality of internet service different areas of the community are experiencing and what improvements they feel are needed.
Los Alamos County Councilor David Izraelevitz is a member of the group and is working on the survey as a private individual and not in his capacity as a councilor.
Izraelevitz told the Los Alamos Reporter there’s been a lot of debate over the years about the quality of internet access in Los Alamos.
“This has become especially relevant the last year. Everyone wants to improve internet in town, and I’ve had lots of conversations with friends and neighbors about this,” he said. “It seems that one important step is to better understand how we use internet, such as our performance desires and needs in terms of speed, reliability, and cost, and how our current options stack up against our needs.”
Izraelevitz said for this reason, he has worked with some friends to put together a simple survey to collect information about access and quality of internet in Los Alamos. The group is planning to close the survey Jan. 31 and then analyze the results.
“I encourage everyone to fill it out, so we have a good representation across providers, neighborhoods, etc.,” he said.
