Merit Network will be holding a community meeting to provide an introduction to the Cass County communities on Merit’s Broadband Stimulus Project, REACH-3MC.
In 2010, Merit Network, Inc. and its project sub-recipients were awarded federal stimulus funding for two broadband projects in Michigan. The route for REACH-3MC will bring this fiber build to the Cass County area.
On December 14, 2010, representatives from Merit Network will introduce the plans for this project and answer questions on how the community can take advantage of this high-speed network.
This meeting will be held at 1 p.m. EST on December 14 at:
Southwestern Michigan College
Matthews Conference Center West
