La Porte County officials have hit a stumbling block in having sufficient broadband coverage.

A recent application for state funding was turned down.

The money is strictly for broadband extension to unserved areas.....

But....La Porte County is viewed as underserved.

So...we're not eligible for those dollars.

Commissioner Sheila Matias says the county is not giving up.....though.

She says talks are occurring with major broadband providers and lawmakers at both

the state and federal levels of government.

Matias says it's a high priority because sufficient broadband nowadays is a must to adequately

compete economically.
