How $416 million in federal funds could help boost rural broadband access in Nevada

Nevada is set to receive $416 million to build out broadband networks that target the least-served areas first. It’s a huge tranche of funds — the single largest broadband investment in U.S. history — that has accelerated the state’s timeline for ensuring every Nevadan has access to affordable, high-speed internet. The grant is expected to close the gap for the nearly 100,000 Nevadans and Tribal natives in the state without access to standard-speed internet and boost broadband capacity across every county in the state.
