Announced during Sec. Castro’s visit to Wilson in October, Greenlight and the Wilson Housing Authority entered a partnership to make broadband services available and affordable to public housing residents.
Beginning in November, Greenlight began signing up residents for high-speed internet for a minimal cost. The Housing Authority agreed to provide residents with routers.
Will Aycock, Greenlight general manager, told the Wilson Times, ““Because of this partnership, more students will be able to be online in their homes and more adults will be able to take advantage of online job training and application tools.”
Ca-Voncha’ Pearce, a N.C. Wesleyan College student double majoring in business and accounting, told the paper, “It’s great. I can get my college work done.”
