We Help Broadband Enablement Across NC
Broadband access availability is responsible for increased economic benefits, increased productivity and education results, for improved living standards and safety. Despite all these benefits, 40% of rural America lacks broadband access. The NC legislature through the rural mini-budget (H387) bill signed by governor Roy Copper on October 14, 2019, allocates $15mil/year for 10 years in matching funds for broadband providers.
NC-BARIC was created by the Department of Technology Systems at East Carolina University to help citizens, service-providers and state-local governments leverage available financial, expertise and technological resources towards effective broadband access enablement.
