Buchanan County Working to Expand Rural Broadband Coverage

(MISSOURINET) –  Northwest Missouri’s Buchanan County commissioners are setting aside around two million dollars from the American Rescue Plan that will go toward rural broadband

Commissioners are working with the state and a local fiber-optic network to try and improve rural broadband access in areas that need it most.

Buchanan County Presiding Commissioner Lee Sawyer says the county is trying to decide how to best put its dollars along with ARP-A funds to move the project forward.

Sawyer says the county remains in contact with a fiber-optic network that provides high-speed broadband services to many different communities and rural areas in Northwest Missouri.
