Governor: State to invest additional $240 million in broadband

ATLANTA – Gov. Brian Kemp has announced plans to invest $240 million in federal COVID relief funds in expanding Georgia’s high-speed internet infrastructure.

“Whether you own a small business in rural Georgia, run a farm that utilizes precision agriculture technology, or have children that need to do their homework, the expansion of high-speed internet impacts all Georgians,” Kemp said. “Regardless of location, access to broadband service is essential for all communities in the Peach State to thrive. I remain committed to helping improve the lives of our citizens by closing the digital divide in our state.”
