This State of Oregon website provides information regarding the availability of broadband Internet services in Oregon and broadband planning activities. It is supported by grant funds from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) State Broadband Initiative (SBI). We regularly update representations of broadband service availability in Oregon using an Interactive Map by working with state agencies, the federal government, broadband service providers, and local community organizations. This website and the Interactive Map remain in 'beta' mode, as continued enhancements and functional improvements are anticipated and in development.
In January 2011, an Oregon-specific broadband adoption- and use-focused survey was completed. It includes comparisons with national broadband adoption and utilization statistics. Highlights from the report show that Oregon broadband adoption is above the national average overall, and in many demographic aspects. However, there are notable differences between regions within Oregon. The entire report is large - which makes for an extended download time - so we have made smaller, individual sections of the report available for separate and faster download.
