RALEIGH
A new state website is designed to help expand high-speed internet access for underserved communities in North Carolina.

The state's Department of Information Technology's Broadband Infrastructure Office has announced the launch of the website at www.ncbroadband.gov.

The website includes a map that shows where high-speed internet is available in the state. It also provides information about resources available for businesses and communities in North Carolina to get access to high-speed internet.

Gov. Pat McCrory has set a goal of expanding high-speed internet access to underserved communities and extending Wi-Fi access to every classroom in North Carolina.
