Nevada County & Sierra Business Council Award Grant for Rural Internet Expansion to Oasis Broadband
Nevada County and the Sierra Business Council have announced Oasis Broadband internet will receive a grant to help expand access to Nevada County internet services throughout our unserved and underserved region. The County of Nevada 2021 Last Mile Broadband Grant program is designed to assist Internet Service Providers (ISP) with the resources to invest in building broadband infrastructure that supports economic development, public safety, remote learning, telehealth services, and overall community prosperity in Nevada County. Oasis Broadband is honored to lead the efforts and develop fixed wireless services at an affordable cost to assist in the technological transformation of Dog Valley, Klondike Flat, and Russell Valley.
Oasis Broadband is proud to be a local company with offices in Truckee and Colfax, and to provide internet service for almost 20 years in the Sierra Foothills and High Mountain areas. We have used “whatever it takes” as our mantra and have deployed fixed wireless and fiber optic service for underserved homes, condos, apartment buildings, businesses and more.
“The letters of support Oasis received from the community have been overwhelming, and we are glad to be able to step in and assist,” said Devin Koch, Oasis Broadband’s founder. “We believe that everyone deserves access to quality internet, not just locations that big corporate cable and DSL providers dictate.”
With the grant, Oasis could be providing new and improved Nevada County internet services as early as Fall 2021. It is exciting news for those in these areas, and a bearer of internet hope for surrounding areas.
