A once in a generation opportunity for your co-op and for your community.

At last, there is a funding program that delivers on the Vision for Broadband in Rural America—the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF). An unprecedented $20.4 billion has been allocated for the construction of broadband networks in rural communities. Now education, health care, economic development and quality of life in rural areas will no longer be negatively impacted by the lack of fiber infrastructure. Utility Grade Broadband brings world-class broadband to everyone. But you’ll need help with the process: feasibility studies, business modeling, network design, construction and more. Join the Consortium and you’ll gain access to industry-leading experts and all the resources needed to realize the vision for broadband in your community.
