BRIDGE funds to assist with the cost of a TechSmart feasibility study to determine needs, assets, limitations and costs of providing wireless broadband to underserved areas of Ware County. The project's scope includes the entire County, where low-cost broadband service is currently unavailable; and the City of Waycross was chosen to be the applicant because it has the resources needed to administer a OneGeorgia grant. TechSmart's proposal includes a work plan focusing on product control, increased revenue for businesses and the identification of new revenue sources. Letters of support from Ware County and Southeast Georgia RDC confirm the project's county-wide scope where low-cost broadband service is currently unavailable.


Total Budgeted Project Cost: $10,000
