How it will work for the Clay City & Sailor Springs – Illinois Broadband GrantRead more
As a Broadband Access project, this middle mile and last mile deployment will serve 659 unserved households, businesses, farms, and community anchor institutions in parts of Clay County with 24 miles of fiber cable. In a funding partnership with the State of Illinois, the Wabash Communications will improve unserved areas to 1 Gigabits per second download and 1 Gigabits per second upload. Building a fiber-to-the-premises network that provides advanced, high-speed broadband services to households, businesses and farms in the grant area improves access to critical school e-learning applications while also providing residents the opportunity to work from home. The broadband network will improve access to rural health care resources and will stimulate a more robust local area economy. With hopes to start construction in the year 2021.
