The  Broadband in West Virginia Toolkit introduces legal issues relevant to local governments and local government partners seeking to expand broadband access in the state. 

West Virginia ranks 44th among all states for internet connectivity, with only 39.3% of West Virginia residents having affordable internet access. Local governments and partners must think creatively about how to expand broadband. Although this toolkit identifies useful resources on developing partnerships and feasibility studies, the focus of the toolkit is on legal issues and legal tools.
