A public forum to share information about the UC2B project, including the UC2B Expansion competition that ends July 30, 2012. UC2B is our local, community broadband project bringing some of the nation’s fastest fiber optic Internet to residences and businesses. Learn about what UC2B offers in the grant-eligible neighborhoods as well as the UC2B Expansion competition. More details about the competition are enclosed below.
Neighborhoods with the most people who sign up by July 30 will be connected first. Sign up to help put your neighborhood ahead of the pack. Fiber optic broadband will provide faster, cheaper Internet than what is available today. It also adds roughly $5,000 to your property value. To win, we need residents to prove that our community wants some of the fastest Internet in the nation.
