Is a Locally-Owned Network Right for You?
Uncovering the Costs and Benefits as a First Step

June 28th, 2 PM EDT

Rural towns, underserved areas, and even urban areas are finding that the time to take their broadband future into their own hands may be now. Building a network is a big investment-but for many communities, the benefits outweigh the costs.

• Present an overview of the successful Ammon network, its financing, and the benefits to the community in terms of cost savings and economic advancement
• Show how your community can uncover the quantifiable benefits of a build or debunk a business case-quickly

  1. Lake County might also be an interesting case study on the viability, or lack thereof, of a publically funded broadband network. It appears RUS is about to take a serious bath on that project.
