Carver County Open Fiber Initiative

The Carver County Open Fiber Initiative, a partnership between the county, affiliated city governments, and Jaguar Communications, a for-profit small business, proposes to build a high-speed fiber optic network across the south-central Minnesota county, bringing advanced services to its key community organizations. The project plans to connect schools, libraries, and community colleges, including the Waconia Library and the South Metro campus of the Dunwoody College of Technology, to improve educational services, distance learning, and remote teaching. The project also proposes to construct 121 miles of new fiber that will be open to as many as nine last-mile providers in the region in order to improve commercial broadband availability and adoption.
