Community Networks Quickstart Program – application deadline September 28

The Institute for Local Self Reliance introduces a new program…

Introducing the Community Networks Quickstart Program, Our New Service with NEO Partners

Determining if a publicly owned network is right for your community is a multi-step, complex process. Many factors will influence whether or not the residents, business owners, and local leaders in your community will want to make an investment in Internet access infrastructure.
ILSR’s Community Broadband Networks Initiative is now working with NEO Partners, LLC, to help local communities in the early phases as they consider investing in publicly owned infrastructure. Along with estimates for three different broadband approaches (Full Fiber-to-the-Premise model, Full wireless model, and a Hybrid approach), communities will receive advice and resources tailored to their needs. For a limited time, a few select communities will receive special pricing to help spread the word about the Community Networks Quickstart Program.

Communities of all sizes are encouraged to apply! Applications must be submitted by September 28th to be considered for the reduced rate. Find the details about the application process here. Please contact us at info@cnquickstart.com with any questions.
