From Carolina Journal:

As the JLF notes in a recent policy paper on broadband, more than 95% of North Carolina can choose from at least three broadband providers, making the state better connected than most. That prompted the R Street Institute to give North Carolina a B-plus plus grade on its 2020 Broadband Scorecard Report.

R Street said that “North Carolina should focus on wireline broadband construction and establish a fee cap for franchises. These steps will help with the deployment of wireline infrastructure to balance out the great work the state has done on wireless.”
