Today saw a tremendous breakthrough for rural communities throughout North Carolina that are eager to see the benefits of broadband internet service. Gov. Roy Cooper signed into law the "Electric Co-op Rural Broadband Services" legislation (Senate Bill 310) approved by the state Legislature. Details can be found in this news coverage from the North Carolina Electric Cooperatives organization.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to Gov. Cooper and state lawmakers for this important action to better the lives of so many of the state's residents, businesses and communities, including those served by Roanoke Electric Cooperative.
