The PUD is allowed by state law to use its facilities to aid companies, municipalities and non-profits to provide internet.   The current board has refused even to study the issue, and for many of our customers, internet is a basic necessity just like power and water.

The current Commission is resistant to broadband


Broadband makes your neighborhood more desirable

Houses are worth more, and are easier to sell or rent with broadband

 

Broadband attracts business

Frustrated cities do it themselves - but the PUD should be helping them!


Our local towns and cities are trying to do this on their own - why?  The PUD should be there with them.
