Oregon South Central Regional Fiber Consortium Lighting the Fiber Middle Mile Project

The Regional Fiber Consortium Lighting the Fiber project proposes to enhance an existing fiber-optic backbone and deploy 124 miles of fiber-optic network to deliver broadband capabilities across three large, mostly rural counties -- Lane, Douglas, and Klamath -- and the Klamath Tribal regions, in Western Oregon. The project plans to enhance education, healthcare delivery, job training, and government services by providing 100 Mbps connections for more than 100 community anchor institutions, including medical centers, public safety entities, schools, community colleges, and libraries. The project also expects to spur new or improved high-speed Internet access for local consumers, including an estimated 104,000 households and 6,000 businesses, by enabling local Internet service providers to connect to the project’s open network.
