Community Broadband Bits 8 – Jim Moorehead of Mendocino County, California

The eighth podcast in our Community Broadband Bits series is a discussion with Jim Moorehead, the Chair of the Executive Committee of the Broadband Alliance of Mendocino County in California. Mendocino is a large, rural county in the northern part of the state that has been left behind by major incumbent providers including AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon.

We talk about what steps they have taken to solve their problems and discuss the frustrating state of broadband mapping — state and federal officials readily accept the dramatic exaggeration of incumbent footprints where broadband is available.
