Find out what Connect has
There’s change happening at the speed of light in rural communities across America. High-speed broadband is the future, and the future becomes more accessible with every mile of state-of-the-art fiber optic technology. Construction of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks makes it possible to deliver reliable broadband Internet service to previously unserved and underserved communities, transforming lives and livelihoods across the United States.
World-class fiber broadband will now be accessible directly from rural broadband design and construction management leader Conexon. Connect is a new Internet service provider (ISP) created and structured by Conexon to operate fiber networks throughout rural America.
The debut of Connect is one more way that Conexon is meeting your needs in the heart of your community. Through Connect, high-speed Internet to transform your home, business, health care and education becomes infinitely more accessible and affordable.
Connect will deliver lightning-fast symmetrical broadband service to millions of Americans via a 100% fiber-optic network, the gold standard of communications transmission for reliability and speed.

Across rural America, cooperatives are transforming communities with high-speed broadband Internet, one mile of fiber at a time.
At the forefront of the broadband movement are electric cooperatives. Cooperatives have illuminated rural America since the 1940s with the advent of reliable electric power. Now, they play the same key role in the introduction of broadband, leveraging the structures and principles to build out world-class fiber network infrastructure for the benefit of their membership and communities.
Electric cooperatives are the ideal choice to bring broadband to rural communities because they have the passion, determination and resources to make change happen.
Rooted in rural
Conexon’s approach is to work exclusively with electric cooperatives to launch and deploy high-speed fiber-optic networks along existing electric infrastructure for the delivery of world-class fiber broadband service. With Connect, we are leveraging our decades of expertise in fiber-optic design and construction, operations, telecommunications, federal and state lobbying and customer experience management to launch and operate fiber network projects efficiently, affordably and reliably.

In federal and state funding secured
At this time, Connect’s projects are in the very early planning stages. We are working with local electric cooperatives to determine where we will build first. Partnership with co-ops means we will be building out to your home or business – the fiber network will reach 100% of members in our partners’ service territories.
As you might imagine, a project of that magnitude takes time, and buildouts in each territory likely will occur over 3-5 years. We will communicate frequently as we make progress.
Connect is partnering with these electric cooperatives to launch networks and services to transform lives and communities:
