Missouri seeks partners for broadband Internet project
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri is recruiting companies and private organizations to help expand broadband Internet access throughout the state.
Gov. Jay Nixon's office said the state's request for private partners is a first step toward winning additional federal stimulus money to expand broadband Internet access.
Missouri plans several steps to find qualified applicants.
The first is to ensure eligibility with the federal program. Then the state will check technical expertise and experience, and finally, applicants will be reviewed for their ability to meet the project's requirements.
Nixon says Missouri needs high-speed Internet throughout the state to effectively compete in the 21st century.
