Regional Broadband Meeting

Jeff Lee, LittleT Broadband

Things are quite busy at the moment as the application deadline for the NC GREAT Grant program is April 4th. Macon County and LittleT Broadband are working with multiple service providers to assist them in submitting grant applications that will benefit Macon County. More on that later.

I do want to take this opportunity to thank Senator Kevin Corbin, Rep. Karl Gillespie, Rep. Mike Clampitt, and Rep. Mark Pless for organizing and participating in the Broadband Meeting at Holly Springs Baptist Church this past Monday, 3/21/22. We appreciate the large turnout from our NC legislators, WNC county governments, internet providers, the NC Broadband Infrastructure Office, utility companies, and community members interested in bringing better broadband to our area.

The meeting provided an excellent opportunity for exchanging information and bringing attendees up to date about funding opportunities and the work in progress.
