CLIC Award for National Leadership


The Coalition for Local Internet Choice awarded the City of Wilson the National Leadership Award for 2016.

CLIC established its national awards to honor individuals and organizations for extraordinary contributions to the preservation and protection of local decision-making in critical broadband infrastructure matters.
They selected Wilson for this award in recognition of its extraordinary leadership in bringing advanced communications services and capabilities to the businesses, institutions, and residents of your community, for making such services and capabilities available to neighboring communities, and for advancing local Internet choice throughout North Carolina and beyond by courageously and successfully petitioning of the FCC to preempt the anti-competitive provisions of North Carolina’s communications laws.
