The U.S. Department of Commerce is granting more than 30 million dollars to bring high-speed Internet to 14 outlying North Florida counties. Those 14 counties are designated as part of the rural area of critical economic concern in North Florida.
North Florida Broadband Authority applied for the grant. This funding will help develop a high-speed wireless Internet network to be used by public schools, universities, libraries, government agencies and public safety organizations in the region. The program's grant application was selected from more than 2,000 proposals submitted nationally to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
