Watch On-Demand: How Connect2first and other rural utility providers are deploying broadband to their communities faster

The US broadband industry is experiencing its largest investment cycle ever, with over $135 billion in funding to expand high-speed internet access across the country. This presents a big opportunity for broadband service providers, particularly electric cooperatives and utility providers supporting underserved or rural communities.

In the webinar, we explore how Connect2First, a subsidiary of First Electric Cooperative, and a number of rural utility companies are navigating today’s broadband funding, deployment, and supply chain challenges with a turnkey delivery and digital construction approach. Join us to learn how these cooperatives managed network builds with less overhead and smarter resource utilization, ultimately building up to 30% faster than planned to satisfy their community’s need for connectivity.
