Research

Chair: Andrew Edwards, Tbaytel / Ellis Hill, BMMA Staff

Committee members: Les Kirchman, Actiontec; Colleen Camicia, Frontier Communications; Craig Hern, Harrisonville Telephone; Takemi Nakasone, Hawaiian Telcom; Dianna Linton, MTS

Goal: To drive and oversee market research that will be delivered to the membership at no charge as an additional benefit. The research will consist of two types:

1.     Internal - where we continue to poll the BMMA membership on a variety of issues as we have done in the past (e.g. modems, WiFi, etc.)

2.     External - we will survey outside of the membership (consumers, SMB, etc) on broadband service related issues agreed to by the committee.

Results from both types of research will be shared with participating companies and at our face-to-face meetings. 

Committee members will:

· Identify research that the BMMA membership would value.
· Provide input and 
edits to surveys prior to implementation.
· Participate in reporting on results at our Annual Meeting.

The Executive Director will:

· Provide support to the committee primarily by drafting, editing, implementing surveys

· Report on year end results at the Annual Meeting.
