Leaders in Morgan County are striving to develop a state of the art broadband system and infrastructure that will provide Morgan County users with options for quality voice, high-speed Internet, video conferencing, and data transmission capabilities that are reliable, affordable, and scalable to allow for future upgraded services and capabilities.
