Thomasville gets wireless broadband grant

October 5, 2006

Thomasville-  Thomasville is one of six communities statewide to be the first to receive money from the Wireless Communities Georgia grant program. 

The city will receive $500,000 to establish a city-wide broadband network. Improved connectivity can help the community expand educational opportunities, promote economic development and increase access to government services.

A private part of the network will be reserved for police and other city functions. The city hopes to have the network available to the general public by the second quarter of 2007.
