May 2018 Group Watch: Rural Broadband Coming

Gov. Kay Ivey was joined by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Congressman Robert Aderholt in announcing a $2.9 million e-connectivity Grant for Brilliant, Alabama. The grant will bring e-connectivity to rural Marion County through the Tombigbee Electric Cooperative, a Great Depression-era initiative. The Tombigbee Electric Cooperative will use the USDA Community Connect Grant to deploy a fiber-to-the-premises network in the community of Brilliant and in the surrounding areas of Marion County. This project will connect nearly 500 households to high-speed broadband as well as businesses and essential community services.
