Country Cablevision Brings FTTH to North Carolina
Thanks to $25.3 Million Grant from RUS
While Time Warner Cable and CenturyLink did pay state legislators to pass a law making it much harder for communities in North Carolina to wire themselves
, not everything is rotten in the Tar Heel State. Country Cablevision
this week announced that the company is starting a fiber to the home build that should help serve 33,000 people, 1,900 local businesses and 120 community institutions. According to a press release
, the build is made possible by a $25.3 million grant from the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities (RUS). According to Country Cablevision, deployment is underway now and customers should start seeing live service sometime in early 2013.
