The 12 Days of Broadband for the past 13 years has showcased how investments in network infrastructure, bandwidth, technology, cybersecurity and other value-added services can help ensure digital equity and inclusion for all citizens in North Carolina. From Dec. 7 to Dec. 22, MCNC will feature a dozen ways how broadband has positively impacted communities in the state as well as preview what’s to come in 2024.
“The 12 Days of Broadband is a beloved holiday tradition at MCNC because it has something for everyone,” said MCNC President and CEO Tracy Doaks. “North Carolina has seen historic technology advancements this year, and we can’t wait to once again share these great stories and show what high-speed internet can do.”

Each day of the 12 Days of Broadband will explore a new topic crucial to the digital progress of the state; areas such as cybersecurity, health care, funding and collaborations, education, digital equity and inclusion, and a new wave of innovation.
