The Department of Libraries conducted the 2023 Public Library Broadband & Technology survey in support of the Working Group on the Status of Libraries in Vermont and to inform the participation of Department staff as members of the State of Vermont’s Digital Equity Core Team. The Department surveyed public libraries about their current broadband speeds and public access to technology and provided both bodies with a report on its findings.
The survey consisted of 25 questions about internet vendors and costs, public computer services, technical support, and a broadband speed test.
The survey period was May 17, 2023 through September 19, 2023.
