Building Beyond BTOP – Finding a partner for your Gigabit Community


The continual increase in demand for bandwidth is driving the need for infrastructure based telecom services around the country.   Yet there are countless Schools, Hospitals, Libraries and other Community Anchor Institutions that are still not adequately connected to fiber.  As you look to build a Gigabit Community, justifying construction to these sites individually proves prohibitive.  Learn how to leverage public/private partnerships to establish economy of scale for deployment of bandwidth infrastructure.
