CONNECT THE FUTURE
OUR AGENDA: CONNECT MORE NORTH CAROLINIANS TO THE INTERNET AND DO IT QUICKLY
Access to reliable, high-speed internet service is more important than ever, but at least 472,000 North Carolinians still can’t get connected, according to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. The problem may be even larger. Recent data from BroadbandNow, an organization with a mission to make broadband available to all Americans, found that 512,000 North Carolinians do not have access to broadband.
North Carolina’s Broadband Infrastructure Office recognized in its State Broadband Plan that broadband connectivity is not evenly dispersed and North Carolina’s digital divide is growing.
Our mission is plain and simple: we seek to shape public policy to speed deployment and encourage investment in expanding broadband access throughout North Carolina.
