The Office of Regulatory Personnel, which is responsible for managing funds for the state's broadband expansion through its South Carolina Broadband Office, has declared that its priority will be to connect households that are not yet connected to the Internet. After that, the remaining funds will be used to speed up service for homes with slow connections. The White House has reported that South Carolina has more than 1,700 bridges in a state of disrepair and nearly 7,300 miles of roads in a similar condition. The South Carolina Broadband Office is committed to providing reliable and affordable access to the Internet for all citizens of the state.
To achieve this goal, they have allocated a significant amount of money to infrastructure projects. This funding will be used to improve existing infrastructure and build new infrastructure in order to expand broadband access. The funds will be used to upgrade existing roads and bridges, as well as build new ones. This will help reduce traffic congestion and improve safety on the roads.
Additionally, the money will be used to improve access to public transportation, which will make it easier for people to get around. The funds will also be used to expand broadband access in rural areas. This will help bridge the digital divide between urban and rural areas and ensure that everyone has access to the same level of technology. The Office of Regulatory Personnel is confident that this funding will have a positive impact on South Carolina's infrastructure.
It is estimated that this money will create thousands of jobs and help stimulate economic growth in the state. Overall, South Carolina has received a significant amount of money for infrastructure projects from the federal government. This money will be used to improve existing infrastructure and build new infrastructure in order to expand broadband access throughout the state.
