"Getting Started with Broadband: A Guide for Electric Cooperatives"

Trusted resources and best practices to help rural cooperatives succeed in connecting their communities with fiber internet access

Electric cooperatives are one of the quickest routes to broadband access for the 24 million Americans without it. Just as electric cooperatives answered the call to provide power to their communities in the 1930s, today they are rising to the occasion to provide high-speed Internet access too.

But nationwide, electric co-ops report similar challenges in planning their fiber projects:

  • "Our members need broadband, but how do we start evaluating a fiber project?"
  • "How should we manage our fiber network day-to-day?"
  • "Where do we need to build first?"
  • "How can we meet the reporting requirements for our funding program?"

Here at Mapcom, we've been working for over 40 years to help hundreds of rural communities plan, construct, and operate their wireline networks efficiently. This guide includes some of the tips, tricks, and resources we've gathered over the years.

We hope you'll find them helpful as you get started with your fiber network.
