Without the support and participation of county residents, Alliance success will be limited.
Here are ways you can get involved:
Like and follow our Facebook page! That is an easy one 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/BroadbandAlliance
Another easy way to help: help us crowdsource mobile coverage data for Mendocino by downloading the free CalSPEED app to your mobile Android or Apple phone, and test in all the cellular “dead zones” so that data goes to the PUC. You can also download the CalSPEED desktop app to send home broadband information to the PUC. You can find more information about how to use these apps in the NBNCBC Volume 3 newsletter, page 9 and 10.
Add your email address to our email list so that you can stay informed; your email address and name are kept confidential, and the Chair (Trish) only sends out very limited correspondence (meeting agendas, notes, and important updates). Send an email to Chairman@MendocinoBroadband.org to add your name to the list
