USC aids effort to expand S.C. broadband
The University of South Carolina is teaming up with the Broadband Office in the Office of Regulatory Staff to help expand access to and adoption of broadband throughout the state.
The problem: An estimated 450,000 South Carolinians lack broadband access.
What’s happening: Gov. Henry McMaster and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn launched the Get Connected SC program Tuesday (Feb. 21) at the State House.
USC’s role: The College of Education, Arnold School of Public Health and School of Medicine Greenville have developed a statewide Better Internet Survey and are working with public, private and nonprofit partners to assist in the broadband expansion effort.
Take the survey.
