GREENVILLE — A California wireless phone company has applied for a federal grant to bring broadband service to remote areas along North Carolina’s coast.

The Daily Reflector of Greenville reported Monday that Cleartalk expects to hear next month if it will get $50 million in federal stimulus money to build a wireless network in 38 counties stretching from the Outer Banks to Wilmington. The company plans to build 392 towers that will bring broadband service to about 2 million people.

Cleartalk has built similar networks in other states, including South Carolina, Alabama and Texas.
