PST continues to seek opportunities that will help accelerate deployment of advanced Internet technologies within our region
2010 – American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA). The Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration awarded PSREC $13.5 million dollars to construct a 198-mile, mid-mile fiber optic backhaul network from Reno, Nevada north to Susanville, California and west to Quincy, California. The project now serves as the core communications infrastructure for the region and provides the area with a secure, vital link to the outside world.
2010 – California Advanced Services Fund (CASF). PSREC received a matching grant from the State of California for $1.7 million dollars in additional funding for the mid-mile project.
