Rep. Chris Humphrey: Expanding rural broadband a top priority for NC General Assembly
During this past legislative session, expanding access to rural broadband
and closing the digital divide was a top priority of mine and the
Republican-led North Carolina General Assembly. In rural areas, especially
in my district in Eastern North Carolina, connection to reliable high-speed
internet service is critical to attracting and retaining businesses,
improving health care access and ensuring that our children are not left
behind in the digital age.
