Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has announced a new initiative called RUOnlineVA. Led by the Center for Innovative Technology, the initiative asks Virginia citizens and businesses whether they have broadband service and, if so, what kind of service. The goal is to help the governor and other policy makers understand where broadband is needed most.
Citizens in need of Internet service are asked to log on to RUonline.virginia.gov — or to call the toll-free number 877-969-6685 — to participate in a survey with a few questions regarding their need. Responses will be mapped and shared with policy makers to stimulate broadband policy and funding.
