There are literally thousands of Mason County residents that have asked PUD 3 how it can help bring high speed broadband to unserved or underserved areas of Mason County.
The PUD Fiberhood program is one answer to this dilemma.
To pay for the extension of gigabit broadband service to communities and homes, Fiberhood participants pay a $25 “construction adder” each month for 12 years. It shows up on the bill from the customer’s internet service provider.
U.S. Representatives Derek Kilmer (D-WA) and Elsie Stefanik (R-NY) are sponsoring the “Broadband for All Act” in congress that would allow Fiberhood participants to take a 75 percent tax credit to cover costs of extending broadband to their neighborhoods or communities.
The bill (H.R.6442) would make Fiberhood customers eligible for a 75% tax credit on their “construction adder” charges, greatly cutting the cost to hook up.
Please lend your support of the “Broadband for All Act.” It will help bring high speed broadband services to rural areas all across the country. Look below this paragraph! Make a selection in the form and hit submit.
