Community forum on Broadband connectivity: The Alabama Cooperative Extension System offices of Cullman and Winston County would like to invite you to a community forum to discuss Broadband Internet Connectivity concerns in the more rural areas with few and/or poor connectivity options. This event will be held at the Bernice Hilton Walker Building at Traders and Farmers Bank in Double Springs, just off Highway 278 on Main Street. The meeting will be from 10:30 a.m. to noon today.
The goal of this forum is to engage individuals and exchange ideas about how increased access to broadband technologies would change your community, weigh the cost and benefits of those changes, and engage others to develop broadband adoption strategies. Please call the Cullman County Extension office at 256-737-9386 to reserve your spot at the table for discussion and the light lunch to be served at the end of the meeting.
