Jackson County wishes to ensure equitable access to affordable, high-speed internet for all residents of our county.  

Some rural areas of the county are currently unserved or underserved by broadband telecommunications facilities. As a result, residents in these areas may have only low-speed and/or high-cost internet access options available.

Jackson County therefore seeks to develop a plan to promote the expansion of broadband telecommunication facilities to reach all county residences, as part of an effort to ensure that all residents have affordable options for high-speed internet access.  To this end, we seek to identify consultants with experience and expertise in rural broadband initiatives who can help develop this plan.  Steps in developing such a plan might include, but are not limited to:

  •        Identifying government grants that could help fund planning activities
  •        Analysis of relevant laws and ordinances
  •        Defining standards for “affordable” and “high-speed”
  •        Identifying residences within the county that lack affordable, high-speed internet access
  •        Gathering input from underserved residents to determine demand and price sensitivity
  •        Identification of all current and potential internet services providers
  •        Analysis of existing public and private broadband facilities within the county
  •        Identifying challenges to, and opportunities for, broadband facility expansion
  •        Exploring the potential for public/private partnership
  •        Identifying specific funding sources, including government grants, to help expand broadband facilities.

Interested consultants are encouraged to submit a summary of their qualifications and experience as part of a proposal to assist Jackson County in this effort.  Please send written proposals via email to no later than 5:00 pm (PT) on March 31, 2021.  Questions or comments may be directed to the same address.
