Broadband in Harnett County

In November 2018, Harnett County launched a broadband survey that encouraged citizens to provide feedback on their current broadband capabilities. The County partnered with ECC Technologies, Inc. to conduct the online broadband assessment survey to determine the residences and businesses within the County who continue to struggle with limited access to Internet services, with a particular focus on broadband availability.

Harnett County worked with local libraries and the County school district to ask citizens and businesses to participate in this broadband assessment.
This assessment was created to:

  • verify availability of current broadband services in the County,
  • to identify actual speeds available through the speed test, and
  • collect information on demand for services from residents and businesses across these counties.

Over 1,600 responses were received during the survey period with roughly 90% of responses marked as “complete” by the surveying tool. Only 10% were marked “partial,” indicating the respondent abandoned the survey at some point. Data collected in this survey provided valuable information to Harnett County in their efforts to work towards broadband and economic development planning. Citizens can view the results from the assessment by clicking the link below.

Harnett County Commissioners are working with State Legislatures to gain broadband services in the County. The County acknowledges the need for citizens and buisinesses to have access to broadband and are exploring options such as: applying for grant funding, meeting with broadband providers, and developing partnerships to help move the County forward.
