Rural Youth Telecom Survey

Every other year, the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) conducts a survey of rural youth to gauge their telecom usage and help rural communications companies meet their needs and demands.  This is an opportunity for students to assess and leave their mark on the direction of future telecommunications service provision in their communities.

This online survey can be completed in less than 10 minutes. We appreciate your participation! The more responses we get, the more accurate the survey will be. 

Survey respondents must be ages 13-23 and reside in a rural area.
