The South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff’s Broadband Office and the South Carolina Department of Administration’s (Admin) Digital Equity Office (SCDEO) have launched the Get Connected SC campaign designed to identify the areas of greatest Internet need in our state, invest in broadband infrastructure in those areas and provide support services to make that transformation possible for every home, business and community in South Carolina.
ORS and Admin are hosting events around the state to gather with people in the communities to listen and gain an understanding of exactly how and where improved internet service can impact lives. The tour will cover 26 cities and towns. Each event will last no more than an hour and refreshments will be served. Click the link below for more information and to register at an event close to you:
