BROADBAND PROMISES, BROADBAND DREAMS: LEGISLATIVE BILL PROPOSES BRINGING REAL BROADBAND TO RURAL WEST VIRGINIA

West Virginia is among USA states with the worst real broadband service.

A recent FCC report said Calhoun County, among a half dozen other WV counties, had the worst service in the Mountain State.

Frontier does not measure up to the FCCs standards for broadband speeds, and is continuing to advertise “high speed Internet” that does not perform to stated speeds.

A West Virginia Senate committee advanced legislation this week that aims to expand affordable high-speed Internet service to rural communities across the state.

Frontier Communications opposes the proposal that could bring rural West Virginia into 21st Century technology and open up greater business opportunity.

The state sponsored 2,600 mile fiber optic proposal would cost $85 million to construct.
