Via the CVNGBIP, CVIN plans to provide the much-needed service which the 1,549,008 households in the Valley need in order to meet the FCC Broadband Plan's goal of having at least 100 million US homes with "affordable access to actual download speeds of at least 100 Mb/s and actual upload speeds of at least 50 Mb/s." CVIN will achieve this through a last-mile wireless build-out in Fresno, Kings, Kern, and Tulare counties and relationships with other last-mile providers, both those seeking BTOP funds and those currently doing business within the 18 counties.
CVIN and other last mile providers will use this new Last Mile infrastructure to provide a wide range of services to businesses, government agencies, and residences. Four CCI projects that focus on providing wireless infrastructure in specific counties are: #4464 (Amador, Alpine, Calaveras and Tuolumne), #6145 (Nevada), #6078 (San Joaquin), and #7160 (Mother Lode). If funded, each could provide connectivity between individual schools, health care facilities, businesses, and residences in these counties and all have given us letters of support expressing interest in using our infrastructure and would increase subscriber rates within the last mile piece by over 54,000 users.
