Arkansas Governor Plans to Expand Rural Broadband

LITTLE ROCK, AR (Ben Caxton) — Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson Wednesday released a plan to expand access to high-speed broadband to all towns in the state with as few as 500 residents by 2022. The “Arkansas State Broadband Plan” calls for a state broadband office, which would be tasked with helping citizens, companies, and municipalities access federal programs to assist with high-speed connectivity. Hutchinson says telecommunications companies, rural electric cooperative, utilities, and internet service providers will be able to cite the plan when applying for federal grants to expand broadband infrastructure and connectivity in rural Arkansas.
