Broadband map

A map provided by broadband company Brightspeed shows the routes in northern and southern Pasquotank County where 946 households would receive access to broadband internet under a plan county commissioners approved earlier this week.

Almost 1,000 Pasquotank residences could get a broadband internet connection in the next two years.

Pasquotank commissioners voted unanimously this week to use $150,000 the county received from the federal American Rescue Plan to partner with Brightspeed on expanding broadband service to 946 households in the northern and southern parts of Pasquotank.
