On January 28, Anderson 3 Administrators attended the announcement of the selection of Upcountry Fiber (a partnership between West Carolina and Blue Ridge Electric) by Anderson County as the provider to bring high-speed fiber internet to unserved areas of the county. Areas inside Anderson Districts 3 & 4 are slated to be priorities in the project. Anderson 3 has a long-standing partnership with WCTEL, and together we are in the process of identifying areas of need in our district. We are excited for our unserved families to access high-speed internet soon.
