The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced yesterday that they have invested $5.2 million in high-speed broadband infrastructure that will create or improve rural e-Connectivity for rural households and farms in Kansas. This is one of many funding announcements in the first round of USDA’s Reconnect Pilot Program investments.
Wave Wireless, LLC will use ReConnect Program funding to deploy a Fiber-to-the-Premise broadband network capable of simultaneous transmission rates of 100 megabits per second or greater. The funded service areas include 1,390 households, 16 businesses, and 23 farms. The project will facilitate more access to services and information for local residents, and it will improve the overall quality of life for people in the community.
