Small Businesses Concerned About Local Infrastructure Issues
The main concerns that small business owners place on infrastructure improvements can depend upon what industry they are in, but many are most concerned about the infrastructure in their area.
That's the finding a survey released in March by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The study, conducted in January, asked 1,001 small business owners. Here are some of the results:
— When it comes to transportation infrastructure, the inferior quality of roads close to home was most unpleasant to owners. Sixty-nine percent said local roads needed the most improvement; 44% said highways needed improvement, 30% said bridges did and 25% cited mass transit as needing to be improved.
— Owners were more anxious about the quality of internet service than their cellphone connections — 57% said improving high-speed internet access is a main priority compared to 35% who say cellphone networks are a priority.
— Checking out the results according to the industries companies are in, needless to say, owners of service businesses were most alarmed about good communication infrastructure. Eighty-five percent said high-speed internet is most important to them, and 78% cited cellphone coverage as most importing. Local transportation was most essential to retailers, manufacturers and companies that supply resources; it was cited by more than 80% of owners in each industry.
