Zipp | Grant County Fiber Optic Program
Network Overview
Anticipating the future technological needs of the utility, Grant County PUD began developing a fiber optic communication system in the 1980s that now links the hydroelectric projects, most substations, all local offices and the headquarters building. The fiber optic connection of Grant PUD's facilities created a "backbone" throughout the county, which has enough excess capacity to provide broadband access to the residents of the county while meeting the needs of Grant PUD.
