Broadband Service Availability Report

Preston residents should complete this very brief survey if you either do not have access to broadband/internet – or – if you can’t get sufficient speeds.

Click here for the survey.

All community members in Connecticut are eligible to submit a report. If you are aware of Preston residents who do not have access to broadband or cannot get sufficient speeds, please encourage or help them to submit a Service Availability Report. This will assist the State in identifying all unserved and underserved locations in Connecticut. 

The mission of the State of Connecticut’s Office of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is to improve the coordination of data that is associated with particular locations throughout the state. 

Connectivity is essential to living in today’s increasingly digital world. More and more, people are conducting the business of their daily lives virtually, be it working, learning, managing health, banking, or any number of tasks that not only add ease and efficiency to life, but are fast becoming requirements of participation.

For many in our state, especially those in low-income and underserved areas, barriers to connectivity remain. The Office of Telecommunications and Broadband works to remove those barriers, by developing equitable policies and programs that will significantly expand access to fast, affordable, and reliable internet service, providing all residents and businesses of Connecticut the economic and social benefits of broadband access.

Broadband is your connection to the internet. Regardless of the type of connection used, it involves technology that allows for wide bandwidth data transmission, supporting multiple signals and types of traffic.
