Virginia officials seek info about residents’ Internet service

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Virginia officials want residents to help them pinpoint what areas in the state lack access to broadband Internet service.

The new initiative announced Tuesday by Gov. Terry McAuliffe is aimed at helping officials fill gaps in broadband coverage across the state.

McAuliffe is asking residents to sign onto a new website RUonline.virginia.gov to let officials know the level of internet connectivity they have.

Residents will be asked a few questions about where they live and their Internet service.

The governor’s office says the initiative will run through early August. Residents who can’t access the website at home can visit a local library or call (877) 969-6685.
