Local Broadband Solutions for the Greater Harbor Springs Area: A Community Approach

HARBOR, Inc. Community Technology Action Plan

Community Technology Action Plan released on April 11th, 2013

Facilitating the expansion of reliable, affordable high speed internet to residents, businesses, and visitors to the HARBOR, Inc. service area that are currently unserved or underserved is a long-time initiative of HARBOR, Inc. A small subcommittee has been meeting over the past few years to work on the initiative, and most recently has been working with a larger, regional Broadband Team to facilitate the process through the Connect Michigan Community Engagement Program. The Community Technology Action Plan is now available below or as a hard copy by contacting HARBOR, Inc. staff.  In moving forward with the many goals and recommended actions, HARBOR, Inc. will implement the Plan over the next 5-10 years. Please refer to the Team project and project related documents listed below.

HARBOR, Inc. Area Internet Services Survey

An internet services survey was mailed in July 2012 to approximately 6300 addresses, comprising all of the property owners/residents in the HARBOR, Inc. service area with the exception of the City of Harbor Springs. The survey gauges area resident's current service needs, interest in high speed Internet service, and willingness to pay for services. Our intent is to attract more service providers to the unserved and under-served area by identifying the potential customer base. The results may also be accessed below.
