ICYMI: Thousands in North GA Don’t Have Reliable Internet

State & National

ICYMI: It’s 2017, but thousands in north GA don’t have access to reliable internet

ATLANTA—WSB TV reports that thousands of northeast Georgians lack access to reliable broadband services while their internet provider has received millions in federal tax dollars. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) hears regularly from neighbors who are frustrated with their lack of internet access, and he has been working to address the challenge.

WSB’s investigation led to a two-part story tackling the problem and considering solutions, including Collins’s GO Act, which would promote broadband development in underserved areas like north Georgia.

PROBLEM:

WSB: “You have federal tax dollars here going to provide a service. Do you believe that service is being provided?”

Collins: “Right now, in northeast Georgia, no, they’re not.”

SOLUTION:

Collins: “We’re trying to take a proactive solution while at the same time holding accountable the federal dollars that are supposed to be going for this.”
