Marion Senior High School hosted a meeting of citizens interested in improving access to broadband Internet service in Smyth County on Jan. 13. Smyth County government has received a planning grant to identify underserved areas and needs for greater connectivity. The results of the planning grant will be used to apply for additional funding to improve Internet access. A critical part of the planning grant is a citizen survey. If you have not already done so, please complete the survey to help the county identify areas in need of broadband Internet access.
More information regarding Virginia's overall broadband improvement efforts are available from the Commonwealth Connect website.
