From the smallest, serving economically distressed communities or areas with just one to two meters per mile, to the largest, serving affluent, high-density communities rich in consumers and business members – there is a story to be told and valuable lessons to learn from the co-ops who have blazed the trail before you.

Conexon partners with electric cooperatives and community organizations at all stages of their fiber broadband journey. From helping to secure funding, to designing and building networks, to providing technical support and more, Conexon fosters the success of its partners. Together, we are working to transform rural America with mile after mile of fiber broadband.
