Broadband As A Utility

How will broadband infrastructure money be spent?

Municipal Internet Service Throughout WNC?

WRAL calls out Wilson North Carolina as a model for municipal broadband as a utility similar to electricity and water. Could this model work in Western North Carolina communities?

How could the details of infrastructure funding play into how high-speed internet is made available for all of Western North Carolina? Could it favor rural areas over cities?

Please contact a member of the WNC Broadband Project Leadership Team with thoughts or comments.
