Results of the FCC's Rural Digital Opportunity Phase 1 Auction are in!

Conexon and members of its Rural Electric Cooperative Consortium have been awarded over $1.1 billion to provide Gigabit-capable broadband

With more than 90 participating cooperatives, the consortium assembled, designed and led by Conexon was the auction’s largest bidding consortium and won more states, locations and funding than any other consortium.

Conxon's Proven History of Funding Success

The RDOF award builds on previous success from the last large-scale federal communications funding auction, the 2018 Connect American (CAF) II. The consortium led by Conexon was the largest Gigabit-tier winner, awared $186 million in CAF II.

In 2020, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Conexon worked to secure CARES Act funding and support 7 Mississippi electric cooperatives’ broadband pilot projects to build over 2,000 miles of fiber and connect nearly 14,000 rural homes in less than five months.

Conexon is the only firm with 25 years of experience lobbying on behalf of electric co-ops at the federal level. We are experts at auction and bidding strategies and securing funds for clients – more than $1.3 billion to date in local, state and federal broadband funding for co-ops.
