Survey Respondent Comments

“I would be on the Internet more if it were faster. I would use it more for my daughter, who is in high school. One of her classes requires Internet access. She would love it for music. We would be able to use it for our business more. We are in the process of building a home and I could use it for finding items easier.” Payson resident

Survey Respondent Comments

”We would like to download data to our other offices. We would like to download CT scans and x-rays. Tele-medicine would be beneficial. We use email now and do research on the Internet. Anything would be better than we have now. We send a lot of information over the fax. It is slow and wastes time.”
