Pend Oreille county to get $27.3 million for high-speed broadband
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Pend Oreille County Public Utility District will receive $27.3 million in a federal grant to bring high-speed broadband access to communities in northeastern Washington.
U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said the money will deliver affordable broadband access to as many as 3,200 households and other customers.
The grant will allow the Pend Oreille PUD to deploy a fiber-optic broadband network along its electric service route to the premises of healthcare providers, school districts, libraries, government buildings, the Kalispell Tribe and others.
