Currently, residents and owners of approximately 24,000 homes and business in Grants and the surrounding area have no broadband internet option and rely on satellite internet, the speed of which depends on several factors including the provider, service package purchased, the consumer’s line of sight to the orbiting satellite, and the weather. This project will provide an affordable, reliable internet option for these homes and businesses.
