DANBURY, Conn. -- Results of a survey sent to Danbury residents by robocall earlier this week showed they overwhelming favored receiving $15 fiber-optic internet service, according to WLAD.com.

Some 12 precent of residents responded to the survey, with 76 percent saying they would favor the idea of the city hiring an outside company to install, maintain and provide the service as a way for all residents to have access to the internet, WLAD.com reported. Mayor Mark Boughton first proposed the idea during his State of the City address, said WLAD.com.

Eventually, residents would pay nothing for the service under a tiered plan where residents would pay $15 a month for five years, $5 a month for the next five years, then they would receive the service for free, added WLAD.com.
