Petersen and Allen Discuss the Importance of Rural Broadband

CFC CEO Sheldon Petersen and Senior Vice President of Member Services Joel Allen join CFC Vice President of Corporate Communications Charles Gloeckner to discuss how rural broadband expansion demonstrates electric cooperatives’ commitment to their communities as the pandemic increases the importance of access to broadband as more people work, learn, shop and receive healthcare at home. They also share broadband project experiences from across the network, recommend taking a measured approach by conducting a feasibility study, breaking projects into phases and evaluating take rates compared to business plan assumptions.
