Rural communities commonly have difficulty financing middle-mile and last-mile broadband infrastructure. Although there are a few state-level entities attempting to bridge the broadband gaps, rural communities are often the last to be connected to today's high speed networks. During this webinar, speakers will discuss solutions to financing middle-mile and last-mile fiber optic networks, such as leasing "dark fiber" capacity.

Presenter: Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA)
Panelists: Jeff Reiman, The Broadband Group; John Paladino, Bandera Electric Cooperative; Representative of the USDA.
