Rural-Assembly-2015-Logo H copyThe 2015 N.C. Rural Assembly welcomed nearly 400 people to the Triangle in late September for two days of in-depth discussions on the future of rural broadband and what it means for North Carolina's economy.

While it is true that there is much to be done to improve broadband access, there have been a number of innovative successes, and resources and assistance are available to help communities improve their digital infrastructure.

This webpage is designed to be a repository for all-things Assembly. More items will be added here as we continue our work toward expanding broadband access across rural North Carolina.
