A 4,000-mile broadband network represents a huge capital investment for an electric co-op - or any community organization for that matter. When done right, a comprehensive pilot project can save you a ton of money and a lot of time.
Learn how Co-Mo Cooperative in central Missouri ran a year-long pilot that removed a great deal of uncertainty, and paved the way to a very confident launch of a 4-year buildout. Co-Mo determined that buildout costs could be notably less that projected, and they achieved a take rate of about 46 percent, which is considerably more than expected.
General Manager Randy Klindt offers listeners details on how to plan, establish measurement criteria for and execute pilots. He also provides community stakeholders with useful advice on how to maximize the strengths of electric co-ops as part of an effective broadband strategy.
