Digital eCheckup

Arlington County has launched a broadband study to better understand our community’s internet use and access. As  part of this work, we’re asking residents and businesses to participate in a digital eCheckup. It is critical that we hear from those who may not have adequate access or connectivity so we understand where our gaps are. But we also want to hear from those who have strong connectivity and are expert users, so we get a full picture of Arlington’s internet use.

We encourage all Arlington residents to take the Households eCheckup. While taking it at home is best–because of the connection speed check–taking it in a business center, library, or other shared computer is also acceptable.
