Jefferson County has thousands of homes that do not have access to usable Internet access for 2023. Many homes in Jefferson County do not even have crappy DSL connections and could not do remote work or education, or have telemedicine appointments. Each home that is upgraded to high speed Internet will likely be valued around $10k more.
Jefferson County is about to ask for additional grant money to supplement the smaller amount that they got in the last GigReady round which will allow them to get to almost every home stuck with slow finally. Homeowners Voice is sending a letter in support of this additional amount. And we hope that you sign on to the letter that we will make sure that gets to Charleston to support the additional grant money.
