Today’s high-tech world consists of constantly streaming phones, TVs, and tablets, where the average American broadband household has seven video-playing devices.* Internet-savvy consumers are demanding increased bandwidth, turning broadband services from a luxury into necessity. However, many rural areas still do not have adequate broadband services since traditional internet carriers do not sufficiently serve these areas.
To address this inequality, 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 of PSE consultants can assist your utility by providing a neutral, third-party feasibility study that includes pro forma income and balance sheets based on fiber plant costs, administrative costs, and predicted broadband take rates.
