Broadband in Nevada County

The Challenge

Providing high-speed internet or “broadband” services in sparsely populated rural areas with our rugged Nevada County terrain is much more expensive than in more urban areas. Therefore, some residents go without access. For those who do have broadband service, providers sometimes perform minimal network maintenance and upgrades, leaving customers with slower speeds and older technologies. Our goals are:

  • Achieve universal coverage to all homes and businesses
  • Keep pace with the ever-increasing standard for broadband speeds
  • Bridge the economic barrier to affordable broadband service
