NC and County Government – Improving High-Speed Internet

How will the State of North Carolina and Counties improve and make reliable, fast internet available to all?

Now that North Carolina has ‘political will’ to implement broadband or high-speed internet throughout the state; what and when happens next?

Sadly many in rural communities can not get internet service because:

  • Internet service is not available
  • If internet service is available, the cost of internet service and/or computer equipment is prohibitive
  • Knowledge of how to use the internet is not available

In Western North Carolina, there is a broadband leadership summit on Wednesday, April 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

See this article to learn more about the leadership summit and how you could further the ‘will’ of implementing dependable high-speed internet for Western North Carolinians.
