Community Investment Incentives
Communities want and need high performance, future-proof all-fiber networks.

Communities are creating a compendium of best practices which the Fiber Broadband Association will track and make available.

The Council intends to follow-up these letters with additional advocacy. If you have facilities or operations in North Carolina and would like to join us in the opposing this legislation, please contact Heather Gold or Tom Cohen
