Feds provide $2.3M grant to expand broadband access in Moore

CARTHAGE – Residents and businesses in Moore County could soon have access to internet broadband due in part to a $2.3 million grant from the US Department of Agriculture.

“Randolph Telephone Membership Corporation will use a $2.3 million grant to deploy a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network to connect 3,333 people, 17 farms, 26 businesses and nine educational facilities to high-speed broadband internet in Moore County,” the USDA announced.

“The need for rural broadband has never been more apparent than it is now – as our nation manages the coronavirus national emergency. Access to telehealth services, remote learning for school children, and remote business operations all require access to broadband,” said U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in making the announcement during a visit to the state Thursday.

The funds come through $100 million provided for the USDA ReConnect program.
