Yancey County’s high-speed Internet delay may be resolved

The Yancey County News reports that approval may be close for connecting users to a high-speed Internet system for Yancey County. The News quotes U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows as saying he wanted an end to the delay.

Country Cablevision in Yancey County said it couldn’t begin installing the service without proper paperwork signed in the Rural Utility Service agency of the Department of Agriculture.

No one has been connected to the $25.3 million broadband system even though the News reported the fiber optic system was ready to use.

    This is incredibly annoying. As a web developer I’m about to move to Yancey country and I’m going to have to commute to a place just to get internet service… http://stayasheville.com
