West Sussex business broadband users asked about coverage
The county council is looking to find out about the quality of broadband services in the area.Business broadband users in the south-east are being lobbied for their opinions on the standard of service they receive.
West Sussex County Council has been calling for BT and other internet service providers (ISPs) to improve speeds and stamp out "not-spots" where broadband is currently unavailable.
A survey of residents was conducted at the end of 2010 to discover people's views on coverage and businesses in the area have now been asked the same questions.
Deborah Urquhart, member for environment and economy at the local authority, said responses will be used to encourage ISPs to carry out infrastructure improvements in the county.
"We want to help local businesses and the local economy to benefit from the opportunities a fast broadband connection can bring," she added.
No West Sussex communities were among the 41 market towns named by BT last month in its latest round of fibre optic broadband deployments.
The technology offers download speeds of up to 40Mbps.
