In 2008, your “Life Without Broadband” stories were instrumental in achieving a unanimous FCC vote to open the “TV white spaces” for high-capacity wireless broadband in rural areas.
Now you can share your stories about the challenges that you or your family have faced in obtaining broadband access in Western North Carolina. For example, where are the best free WiFi locations here in the mountains?
This is also your chance to get answers to your questions about broadband access in our mountain region. MAIN has access to the top public-interest broadband experts in the US to help answer your questions.
Ultimately, the goal of “Mapping Broadband in WNC” is to “crowd source” the collective wisdom and energy of our mountain communities to achieve state and federal broadband policies that solve our rural broadband deficit once and for all.
