Bringing Broadband To The Rural Coast

Just because you live in a rural area doesn't mean you have to live with slow Internet service. 

Actually, in a lot of cases, it does. 

Not by design… it's just that providing broadband service in rural areas just doesn't add up financially for would-be providers. 

So it takes some goosing from public coffers to get broadband to remote areas. 

Like the recent state grant for the North Bay/North Coast Broadband Consortium, which includes Mendocino County.  We hear about the plans and their execution.
