Placer County, California Approves $2.2 Million Rural Broadband Project

Rural residents of Placer County (CA) often don't have reliable Internet. The county's Board of Supervisors voted on a project to try to change that. The board unanimously approved a grant for Wave Broadband of Roseville to build fiber-optic Internet infrastructure in parts of Auburn, North Auburn and Penryn, the first phase of a long, concerted effort to bring high-speed Internet to the county's rural communities.
