A Game-Changer For Your Rural Community.

Access to reliable internet is a necessity, even in rural areas. It’s not just about convenience; it’s about ensuring the growth and sustainability of your rural community. Many smaller towns and regions are experiencing a drain of talent, families, and businesses, as people seek better opportunities in larger cities with faster connectivity. But the good news is that fiber optic internet can be a game-changer for your rural community.

Why Your Rural Community Needs Fiber Optic Internet

With fiber optic internet, your community gains the ability to embrace remote work, telemedicine, and more. This means that people won’t need to move away in search of job opportunities or better access to essential services. Instead, they can work and thrive right where they are.

One of the key factors driving this migration to urban areas is the lack of reliable internet access. For education, healthcare, and various other aspects of modern life, a dependable internet connection is indispensable. Kids who have access to the internet for their education have a significant advantage over those who do not. This is why it’s crucial for your community to have the best internet possible if you want to attract residents and businesses.

Traditional internet options like copper and coaxial networks have limitations in terms of both download and upload speeds. This can have a significant impact on applications like video conferencing and telemedicine, where upload speed is critical. Fiber optic internet, on the other hand, provides symmetrical speeds. For instance, if you have one gigabit of service downstream, you also get one gigabit upstream, ensuring a seamless online experience.

Here Are The Steps You Can Take To Bring Fiber Optic Internet To Your Rural Community

2. Survey Your Businesses and Citizens

To make this process successful, it’s essential to gauge the interest and demand among your community members. Before proceeding, conduct surveys to determine how many businesses and residents are willing to subscribe to fiber optic internet services. This data will be crucial for project planning.

3. Secure Funding

Fiber optic internet projects come with a significant cost. Identifying sources of funding is critical. Reach out to federal and state broadband coalitions to explore funding opportunities.

“The Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program, provides $42.45 billion to expand high-speed internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment and adoption programs in all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.” – Broadband Equity Access and Deployment Program
