January 23, 2019 – By now, you have heard that Race Communications has acquired Bright Fiber Network, and you’re probably wondering what that means for you as an advocate and supporter of the Bright Fiber project in Western Nevada County.
We have been working tirelessly to move the project along since early 2018. The Bright Fiber Network and its Nevada County project were awarded a $16.2M California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) grant in December of 2015. On January 10th of this year, the CPUC approved the transfer of the Bright Fiber Network from Spiral Internet to Race Communications.
Our team at Race has the experience and expertise to complete the project in an efficient and timely manner having received ten CASF grants, of which nine have been successfully completed. Our tenth project, “Gigafy Phelan” is well underway.
Bringing our services to a community is a resource-intensive project that requires careful research and planning— luckily the majority of the tough legwork has been done. For more information on the project and our plans, please join us for a town hall meeting on Wednesday, January 30th at the Eric Rood Administrative Center in the Board of Supervisors’ Chambers. The meeting will begin at 7:30 PM.
Please be sure to register for the meeting through Eventbrite. Space is limited, don’t wait!
If you cannot make it to the town hall in person, NCTV will be live streaming the town hall on Channel 17. You may also watch the live stream on Facebook or you can find the recording on Nevada County TV’s YouTube channel afterwards!
