RG FIBER to expand fiber internet in rural Douglas and Johnson Counties
Douglas and Johnson Counties, KS: RG FIBER was awarded a Connectivity Emergency Response Grant (CERG) to expand our fiber internet in rural Douglas and Johnson Counties.
RG FIBER will build 54 more miles of their underground all-fiber network installed in conduit by the end of the calendar year. The fiber will be brought all the way into the home/business to provide multi-gig services.
According to the most recent FCC Broadband Maps (Form 477 data), all of rural Douglas and Johnson Counties are served with multiple “broadband” providers. However, over the past 3 years of interacting with businesses and residents throughout the community, RG FIBER has learned that service has been misstated or misrepresented.
So RG FIBER created The Speed Truth Challenge℠ to crowd-source speed tests directly from the businesses and residents of the Spring Hill community. The data revealed with a 95% confidence that 62% (+/- 3.3% margin of error) of the homes/businesses cannot get 25/3.
