Conexon makes broadband make sense when others can’t.
We craft innovative solutions to suit co-ops of all shapes and sizes across the country, including those that may have conducted previous feasibility studies with discouraging results. Conexon’s projects are the most successful in the country – because they start with a comprehensive, accurate and realistic feasibility study.
Our expert team, many of them co-op veterans, helps assess the feasibility of your FTTH deployment to determine how to build and operate broadband with maximum efficiency, looking closely at every aspect of your infrastructure, operations and business model.
"Do your homework through feasibility studies and talk to a variety of vendors to truly understand the cost of rural builds. It’s smart to estimate conservative take rates, but there is the possibility that those numbers will be exceeded. It’s a win-win for everyone if broadband can be managed properly. That’s what we’re seeing thanks to our partnership with Conexon."
