JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Rural Mississippians may soon have another option when it comes to getting faster internet.
House Bill 366, the Mississippi Broadband Enabling Act, was passed by the state Senate Wednesday morning.
This would give electric power associations the option to provide internet services to customers.
The bill now heads to Gov. Phil Bryant’s desk for approval.
The bill has been a top priority for Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley.
