University of the Arctic Survey on Telecommunications and Broadband Needs in the Arctic
UArctic Members and individuals in the communities they represent are asked to contribute feedback on Telecomm, Internet, Broadband needs of their organizations and communities for input to Arctic Council's Task Force on Telecommunications Infrastructure in the Arctic. Feel free to distribute this survey to any individual living or working in the Arctic or in the Northern Latitudes.

Telecommunications is a very big topic that includes such things as telephone service, satellite service, Internet and Broadband service, VHF, and radio. Arctic Council has formed a Task Force to assess the current state of Telecommunications in the Arctic.

We are asking UArctic members and others to provide feedback on the importance of telecommunications to you, your organizations and community.

This is not a scientific study. This is intended to gather some general feedback from as broad a representation as possible to determine which topics may be of further importance to UArctic members and others living and working in Arctic regions.

This information will also be important to activity planning for the Thematic Network on Arctic Telecommunications and Networking.

There will be an opportunity for free response at the end of the survey.
