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.
