JACKSON — Mississippi will use part of a $5 million federal grant to create a nonprofit group that will try to increase high-speed Internet access through broadband.
Gov. Haley Barbour’s office announced the grant in a news release today. It said the state will use the federal money to collect and verify the availability, speed and location of broadband statewide.
Barbour says business prospects need information about the availability of high-speed connections.
The new nonprofit group, the Mississippi Broadband Connect Coalition, will be a public-private partnership.
