Mason County and Washington DC are closer than you think.
These are quick summaries sharing a local perspective on national issues.
Mason PUD 3’s Fiberhood program is a public/private partnership aimed at delivering rural gigabit service. It is focused on communities with no broadband service, or service that does not meet the FCC standard of 25 Mbps up, and 3 Mbps down.
PUD 3 does not overbuild existing service providers who exceed the FCC standard.
There are 35 prequalified communities, representing over 2,500 homes in PUD 3’s service territory.
The average Fiberhood is 72 homes, small businesses, and cottage industry locations with an average build cost of $149,000. This includes any necessary line extensions, the neighborhood distribution network, and fiber connections all the way to the home.
Communities compete against each other for priority. They use a PUD online service to bring their communities together.
When a competing community reaches a 75% commitment level, PUD 3 adds it to the construction list.
Using the public power cost recovery model, connected communities pay a construction adder over 12 years to cover the extension of the network to their area.
Only active users in successfully established Fiberhoods pay the construction adder: not all PUD 3 customers, and not customers in Fiberhoods that choose not to take service.
