Grant brings high-speed internet in a California county

The Califonia Advanced Services Fund (CASF) has distributed a $29.4 million grant to a collaboration involving nonprofit organizations and internet service provider, The grant allocation is intended for establishing a modern, high-speed broadband infrastructure in Aromas and San Juan Bautista, towns in San Benito County with families and communities underserved by existing internet infrastructure. This broadband solution will provide essential resources like access to job opportunities and educational materials. Notably, the Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista — one of the coalition members — strives to supply free internet connectivity to students within the Aromas-San Juan Unified School District who qualify for the free and reduced-cost meal program. Affirming their commitment to addressing budgetary concerns of low-income families, the partners pledge to offer lowered service tariffs for these income groups as they initiate construction for an advanced network within San Juan Bautista.
