While some communities are benefiting from their electric or telecom co-op expanding to offer broadband services, others have created nonprofit corporations specifically for delivering broadband. Is this move right for your community?

Jobs and sizeable community enhancements have come to several N.C. communities thanks to non-profit broadband operator MCNC. Listeners pick up important lessons and tips from MCNC president Joe Freddoso on how to do effective strategy planning.

Joe describes some of the nonprotif's main accomplishments during the year since he was on Gigabit Nation last year, and their preperations for December's 12 Days of Broadband. Joe also shares MCNC's plans for 2013. The co-op connects K-12 schools, community colleges, universities, and non-profit healthcare sites throughout the state.
