Almost $30 million in federal funding will go to Lenoir County to help expand broadband access. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration announced Friday in a news release that the award will fund the county’s Fiber to the Home Expansion project which will deploy last-mile broadband to more than 15-thousand households in Lenoir County. Statewide, 14% of households don’t have an internet subscription and over 420-thousand North Carolinians live in areas where there is zero broadband infrastructure.
