Magellan, a leader in providing turnkey services for building fiber and broadband networks, has submitted another round of broadband grant applications for its clients across state and federal programs in the first quarter of 2022. Covering over 150,000 premises across six states, these grants will bring fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services to underserved communities across the U.S.
Magellan’s Grants Division spent six months positioning rural and urban organizations to take advantage of these programs, allowing them to accelerate their deployment of FTTH services. Magellan is their turnkey partner to secure funding, design networks, manage construction and ensure compliance with grant programs.
Today’s funding landscape is stronger than ever. Cooperatives, tribes, municipalities, and telcos have unique opportunities to secure federal and state funds through programs that were not previously available to them,” says Magellan CEO John Honker. “These programs support not only rural communities, but also urban centers that traditionally have not qualified for grants.
To date, Magellan has secured and managed over $300 million in broadband funding for public organizations across the U.S. and Canada.
