BendBroadband announces it will work to install about 132 miles of fiber to build infrastructure for high speed internet access in La Pine, Madras, Prineville and Sunriver. This project initiative is awarded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment act to extend broadband access into rural communities. The cities have indicated they welcome the high tech advancement and look forward to working with Bend Broadband. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-September and it is estimated to be completed within a year. BendBroadband was awarded the initial $6.3 dollar grant through the federally funded broadband technology opportunities program.  BendBroadband also contributed $1.9 million of their own funds towards the project.
