MINOT — Residents on Friday voted overwhelmingly in favor of a $15 million plan that will expand broadband service throughout the town. The tally was 120-3.
Voters were asked if they support a plan to appropriate $100,000 from surplus to serve as a ConnectME Authority Grant match. The town is partnering with FirstLight to expand broadband service to underserved parts of the town and will cover about 50% of the residences that do not have adequate internet access.
“This is a great opportunity for the town to bring broadband to about half the homes currently lacking internet access,” Colleen J.
