North Carolina sees Minnesota broadband plan as model

North Carolina Health News reports…

North Carolina is among the first handful of states to establish a rural broadband grant program. Minnesota is seen as one of the leading states with a $20 million broadband grant program.

It’s a bittersweet distinction since Minnesota broadband grants were not funded after the last legislature. But it nice to know that Minnesota is a model.
