NC House Spares Muni Broadband


Author(s):
Abstract:
The North Carolina House rejected a bill that would have prevented cities and towns from providing their own broadband services. The bill was passed by the Senate. Rural areas and small towns are often not provided high-speed internet by telecommunications companies. Cities and towns can now privately complete projects instead of having to wait for companies to install the technology in their area.
