This Rural Development investment will be used to deploy a fiber-to-the-premises network. This network will connect 844 people, 22 businesses and seven public schools to high-speed internet in Bristol Bay Borough, Dillingham Census Area, Lake Borough, and Peninsula Borough in Alaska. Bristol Bay Telephone Cooperative Inc. will make high-speed internet affordable by participating in the Federal Communications Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program and Lifeline Program. Eligible households receive discounts for broadband services in tribal entities and one-time discounts toward the purchase of a computer or tablet. This project will serve New Stuyahok, Levelock, King Salmon, New Koliganek, Naknek, South Naknek, and Ekwok Alaska Native Village Statistical Areas and the socially vulnerable communities of Dillingham, Lake and Peninsula.
