NH 2nd in Broadband Usage

According to a new report by the Economics and Statistics Administration and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, New Hampshire ranks second in broadband usage in the country at 78 percent, trailing only Utah at 80 percent.

In response to that report, State Broadband Director Carol Miller has issued the following statement:

“Although there is still work to be done to bring connectivity to rural unserved and underserved areas, this report speaks well for NH as a tech savvy state and our embracing of new technologies.  

NH has had the reputation of a high tech state in past years.  The notion that we were slipping began as more competition for the status materialized.  NH is indeed a hotbed for technologies and our universities and state incentives for business have had a major influence on that designation.  

NH is a great place for technology businesses. Our biggest assets are qualify of life, lower cost of living, and a dedicated team at the Division of Economic Development under the NH Department of Resources and Economic Development.  We have it all right here in NH.”
