While we’re not quite finished with the overall project, the C Spire Rural Broadband Consortium has been busy in the second half of 2020. Accomplishments include a Business Model White Paper, three completed case studies and a new article on the need for gigabit speeds. Here’s a closer look:

Every town needs gigabit-speed broadband

The Cosortium’s latest article explores how very high-speed broadband in rural communities can attract and retain businesses. We also look at mmWave - the only fixed wireless technology that can provide definitive Gigabit connections now and has the capacity to provide multi-Gigabit speeds in the future. Learn more here.
