Learn how this N. Carolina nonprofit is driving a major broadband stimulus project, the Golden Leaf Rural Broadband Initiative. As they finish round 1, the 12 Days of Broadband Campaign highlights some of the innovations that have sprung from the project so far.


Joe Freddoso, CEO of 25-year old MCNC, joins us to discuss these accomplishments and lessons learn in MCNC's role as a catalyst for technology-based economic development. Besides exploring how to harness broadband to improve local economies, we address:

  • navigating the federal and state legislative environment;
  • managing the challenges of a regional deployment; and
  • bridging middle and last mile deployment efforts.
