Tribe to Conduct Telephone Survey on a Tribally-Owned Telecommunications Company

Mar 23, 2011

Osborne Associates, a Vermont market research firm, will conduct a confidential telephone survey from March 24, to April 2, 2011 with the residents of the southern portion of Akwesasne to solicit feedback on a tribally-owned telecommunications company.

Telephone surveyors will call randomly-chosen members of the tribe to ask their opinions on their current phone, internet and television services. Questions will address such issues as the homeowner’s satisfaction with their current phone, internet and television services. In addition, the surveyors will ask questions to determine whether the needs of the tribe are being met with this proposed broadband infrastructure.
