Broadband Feasibility

Broadband services have gone from luxury to necessity to fully participate in today’s economy and society. However, many rural areas still do not have adequate broadband services as traditional internet providers and telecom carriers do not sufficiently serve these areas. To address this inequality, electric utilities are developing fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) and wireless broadband initiatives to promote economic development and build revenue streams in their service areas.

Our team can assist your utility by providing a feasibility study that includes detailed pro forma cash flow statements, income statements, and balance sheets based on fiber plant costs, administrative costs, operation costs, equipment replenishments, and projected broadband take rates. Our studies include:

  • Detailed budgetary costs for FTTP and wireless broadband technologies
  • Extensive market studies of the broadband competition in your service area
  • Customizable financial and benefit analysis help determine feasibility
