Document Description
The Olinda Last Mile Underserved Broadband Project (Olinda Project, or the proposed project) would involve construction of a second-generation, very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL2) fiber-optic cable network with 25-megabit-per-second (Mbps) download speed and 5-Mbps upload speed (25Mbps/5Mbps). Approximately 15.3 miles of new fiber-optic cable would be buried within protective conduit along existing roads in southwestern Shasta County. The proposed project would be funded in part by the California Advance Services Fund (CASF). On October 3, 2013, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) adopted Resolution T- 17 411 approving CASF funding of the Grant Application for construction of TDS Telecom's (TDS's, or the applicant's) proposed project. On May 12, 2016, the CPUC adopted Resolution T-17517 to provide additional CASF funding for the environmental review and completion of the proposed project. See NOC for full details.
