The New Hampshire Broadband Investment and Planning Initiative has partnered with Mission Broadband for a survey to capture gaps in service and the capacity needs for development of New Hampshire’s future broadband infrastructure. Mission Broadband will handle all the logistics, monitor the survey, collect results and provide data and a report for review. The data will be made available by request to anyone attempting to help move broadband efforts forward in New Hampshire and the region.
In announcing the survey, Carol Miller, Director of Broadband Technology in the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs, stated: “While it is still difficult to consider the impacts that COVID-19 is having on all aspects of the overall broadband network, it could not be a better time to attempt to measure the weak points of the broadband infrastructure and obtain valuable information for our state and providers in the industry.”
She emphasizes that “participation in this survey is extremely important. The survey is intended for distribution to organizations, municipalities, and residents statewide. Help us to direct participants to the online survey.”

Danbury was not an original colonial grant, but was formed from part of the town of Alexandria to the north. In 1794, a group of Alexandria residents petitioned the state legislature to separate Alexandria into two towns due to the inconvenience of having a mountain divide the town, making it difficult for all the residents to gather in a single place.
The petition was granted in 1795, and the lower piece was incorporated as Danbury in that year. The name was suggested by a settler from Danbury, Connecticut. Later more land was added to Danbury from Hill and Wilmot.
In 1800 there were 165 people in Danbury, which on July 10, 1874 was transferred from Grafton County to Merrimack County. Today there are close to 1,300 people in Danbury.
