Leading the Way for Community and Rural Broadband Deployment

In an era where remote work is more pervasive than ever, this widening digital divide threatens to isolate large segments of the population and hamper our collective progress as a nation. It’s official: High-speed connectivity is now an essential service.

Cities and municipalities want fiber for smart city applications. These networks enable high-speed broadband, 4G-LTE, 5G, and Wi-Fi to connect citizens, evolve businesses and industries, expand IoT apps, and bridge the digital divide in rural and underserved areas. As a leader in broadband installation and deployment, Black & Veatch ensures communities get internet services they need to thrive in today’s digital world. Municipal leaders, legislators, and co-ops partner with us to design, plan, and build rural broadband networks that connect communities and drive progress.
