eCheckup Access for Eastern Oregon

All households and businesses in Eastern Oregon are invited to participate in this eCheckup that’s the first step towards reaching goals such as:

  • Identifying the tools and information our community needs now and in the future to maximize the benefits of being connected and online for economic competitiveness and vitality
  • Ensuring more residents benefit from access to distance education, telemedicine, remote monitoring systems, time-sensitive information from police, etc.
  • Enabling local businesses to get some of the over $100 billion in e-commerce pie that’s supported by rural broadband (source: The Economic Impact of Rural Broadband, by Hans Kuttner, Hudson Institute)
  • Increasing the number of choices entrepreneurs have in the types of businesses they start or how they can grow what they already have
  • Helping our youth access more education and career options so they don’t have to leave to have a good job

In today’s increasingly digital world there are unprecedented opportunities for communities like ours.

Our customers are our neighbors and we are really proud to live in the communities we serve. We also value Eastern Oregon`s uniqueness and how together we can make our local economy stronger. This is my invitation for you to participate in this eCheckup. You don’t need to be an EOT customer to participate – we want to hear from all households and businesses across the community.
