Launching a broadband network is only the beginning of a long journey that takes commitment, grit and sustained determination.

But co-op leaders are nothing if not determined to better the lives of those they serve. They understand that building a fiber-to-the-home network is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

Every co-op’s journey is different. From the small – serving economically distressed communities or areas with just one to two meters per mile – to those serving affluent, high-density communities rich in consumer and business members – each finds its own way.

Conexon has partnered with many of those co-ops currently in the middle of their journey. From helping to secure funding, designing and building networks, providing technical support and more, Conexon continues to foster their success. We invite you to read their stories.
