State hands out more than $3M for community wireless broadband

12 октября 2006
Several communities in Georgia, including the city of Decatur and Gwinnett County, will get grants to start wireless broadband networks through the Wireless Communities Georgia Program.

Decatur will get $427,500, while Gwinnett will receive $750,000. The city of Augusta ($562,500), the city of Dublin ($318,750), Milledgeville-Baldwin County ($862,500) and the city of Thomasville ($500,000) are also included in the program.

"Broadband is the new dial tone for the 21st century," Gov. Sonny Perdue said. "Connectivity will help these communities expand educational opportunities, promote economic development and increase access to government services."

The Georgia General Assembly appropriated funds for the program during the 2006 legislative session. The program is managed by the Georgia Technology Authority. Funding recipients will provide a minimum of 25 percent of the project's total cost. Local and state government agencies will be the "anchor tenants" of the wireless networks.
