Technology Committee Launches Internet Service Survey

Tagged in

The RSF Association's Technology Committee launched a survey Friday asking members for their input on bringing high-speed internet to the Ranch.

The introduction to the survey reads:

"The Technology Committee is seeking your input to find the best high-speed fiber-optic internet solution for our community. To create and expedite a successful plan, we need to understand service levels in various areas of the Covenant. (If you have multiple properties, please complete a survey for each address.) Your help is needed and appreciated."

Previous survey efforts have indicated that poor Internet connectivity in Rancho Santa Fe is a leading impediment to improving real estate prices. According to a 2010 survey by the then-Broadband Committee, 69 percent of residents felt the poor connectivity acted as a deterrent to potential home-buyers.

Earlier this month, the Association Board voted to terminate the Letter of Intent (LOI) that had been signed with Hotwire Communications in May of this year. Consequently, a group of Rancho Santa Fe residents launched a petition asking Covenant members to sign in support of putting a less expensive version of the Hotwire Fiber project to a public vote.
