Washington State gets wired for broadband

The Northwest Open Access Network in Washington State has started building a project to bring broadband service to nearly every community in the state without service, CivSource reports.

The project is funded with $140 million in federal economic stimulus money, and is designed to serve hundreds of schools, public agencies, hospitals and libraries, the story added.

Also, a pilot project is starting in Pullman, Wash., to demonstrate the benefits of smart grid technology, CivSource reported.
