Expanding broadband access has been a statewide focus so far in 2017. The Legislature has already approved money to help the entire state grow its access to high speed internet. The Upper Cumberland Development District identified this as an issue that needed to be addressed in our area during its 2015 review.
The good news: we, as a region, are in good shape. That’s according to Megan Farris Choate. She serves as Assistant Director of Economic and Community Development for UCDD. She says the way local government and agencies see broadband as an economic tool….takes many shapes.
